acoustic rock duo
Well, the Pandemic has put some brakes to all our lives, but we're making the best of it. We've been working from home and around our home. We've completed many non-musical projects, but have been working on recording a "meet the bacons" album, as well. Recorded at home and at a distance with some very special guests, we are excited about the progress. We'll keep you updated, but we still have quite a bit of work to accomplish. The distance recording model is a little more difficult than having everyone in the same room. We are thankful for the ability to record with people that we can't be with right now. It makes us feel closer. Stay healthy and appreciate the little things. Peace!
