A New(er) Single -A Pleasure to Burn
As a band we have been playing this song out a lot recently as its lyrical content (originally inspired by the book Fahrenheit 451) seems to have struck a chord with people politically. As part of a clean-up year of publishing missed songs to distribution cycles, we just released this acoustic version of the song. It is now available on Spotify and all streaming formats.
Mary Wears What She Wants
Our illustrator for BELOVED, Keith Negly, is not only an award winning artist featured in The New York Times and The New Yorker - he is also a wonderful author of children's books
. My daughter and I loved reading his book "My Dad Used To Be So Cool" but I jokingly commented to Keith at the time, that he needed to publishing one about a girl so I didn't have to keep changing the gender of his books (at my daughter's request). Well he delivered! Keith's new book is a totally charming account of the true story of Mary Edwards Walker; physician and trailblazing woman's rights activist who was arrested on multiple occasion for wearing pants. Here is a trailer.
