We’re excited to be on the road supporting our new album, but at the same time we were sad to miss our usual Thursday night residency at The Blackeart this week. Here are some photos from the January 9, 2015 edition of Soul Thursday at The Blackheart with ROXY ROCA and Mrs. Glass to remind us of the good times. Thanks to Milton Otto for the great photos.

Exclusive Song Premiere on ARTISTdirect

Exclusive Song Premiere on ARTISTdirect

ARTISTdirect presented an exclusive song premiere for the title track to our new album, “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy,” this week. Here’s what they had to say:

ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Austin, Texas act Roxy Roca to premiere the song “Ain’t Nothin’ Fancy.”

It’s the title track of their album, out today, on Stag Records.

The song hits that elusive sweet spot that happens when a road-tested, polished band hitting its stride is allowed to just crank up and do what it does, with no second-guessing, no pitch correcting and no focus groups — just hitting “record” and letting instinct take over. It’ll make you want to get up out of your chair!

That’s what we like to call “pure!”

The band is a southern powerhouse, stirring up your spirit with a gritty and infectious sound influenced as much by soul and funk as by early rock ‘n’ roll and ’70s psychedelic funk.
