This old man was rescued in 2017 at age 9, but don’t let his age fool you. He has a heart of gold and energy of a puppy. When we got him he wasn’t event potty trained. Turns out you can teach old dogs new tricks.



Our little adventure pup loves the outdoors and laying in rivers and small pools of water. Bo’s skills include the ability to play fetch all day long and eating all of his food including Pintos.



We adopted Nala 7 years ago from Craigslist when she was a kitten. Nala is an expert bird watcher. Her favorite activities include sleeping, mouse catching, and wrestling her best friend, Bo.

I was born lost and take no pleasure in being found.
— John Steinbeck


Songs of Our Country

A song for every state. This is my goal as we travel through the U.S for the next year. I hope to take this opportunity to connect with local musicians and collaborate with other artists and document my experiences through song.

We want our experience with others to be personal and conversational and we believe that one of the best outlets for music is through house concerts.

If you’re interested in booking a house show with us, please contact us.

We have created a Patreon account for our subscribers to receive early access downloads to each state song. Patreon is a social platform that allows people like you to support artists like us. If you would like to support our project, please visit our Patreon account to subscribe. Thank you!
