Twangville on BOXERS:

"Boxers tackles topics social, economic and romantic through the eyes of characters who are bruised but still have some fight left in ‘em. The musical performances, infused with a healthy dose of rebelliousness, are just as bracing..."

We're honored BOXERS is in the Top 20 of "150 BEST SONGS of 2014" at Speakers in Code! 

So cool to see Boxers is in the Top 20 of Songs on the esteemed Speakers in Code year-end list "150 Best Songs of 2014." Lots of cool and beautiful stuff to discover on here. We've been so busy working on behalf of BOXERS I've missed a lot of great new music this year. This list catches me up a bit!

It's that time of year again! We'd love for you to have this grinning "Holiday Jam" as a gift!!  

It's become a tradition that we share this joyfully ramshackle, relentlessly repetitive, grinning and hot-toddied, home recorded, self-penned Holiday Jam with you! Hard to believe it's already December 1st, what a year it's been! The song is called called It's Christmas Time, it was written and recorded late one eve near Christmas a few years ago as a bit of a goof. But the song kept creeping in my head so I had Hans DeKline clean it up with his mastering skills as best he could... And well, the rest is history!

As always it available as a "Gift" to you! There is a "Pay What You Want" prompt, but it's genuinely intended as a gift. 

If you'd prefer to reciprocate a "gift" for It's Christmas Time you can purchase it via "PAY WHAT YOU WANT" on our BANDCAMP PAGE by clicking the image below! Plus Bandcamp allows you to share your email with us so we can keep it touch! We promise to never share your email or flood your inbox! We only write when there's important news and information or something we believe you'd be interested in.
