We were thrilled to see our faces on the cover of The Vanguard, the official newspaper of the University of South Alabama, in a feature on our recent appearance at BayFest Music Festival in Mobile, AL. Here’s a taste:
We were feeling like it was about time for some new band photos last month and when we had a little spare time backstage after soundcheck at BayFest 2014 in Mobile, AL to hang out with our good friend (and amazing photographer) Dave Barfield from Lonely Fox Studios, we thought: “What better time than the present?” Here are some of our favorites from the impromptu photo session.
We were very grateful to Clear Channel Communications and iHeartAustin Radio 103.1 FM for inviting us to perform in the iHeartAustin Live Music Lounge a while back along with fellow Austin artist Amy Edwards. It was great blasting through a short set of some of our favorite tunes for an intimate studio audience.
As we previously posted, the performance was videotaped for release on the iHeartAustin web site, and the videos are now live! We are honored to see our name up there with local and national artists like Vintage Trouble, Wild Child, Max Frost, Bobby Jealousy, Latasha Lee, Shinyribs, Courrier, The Black Angels, My Jerusalem, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and others.
Taye and Errol recently sat down with Netherlands-based The Dutch Guy music blog for a little Q&A. That interview just went live this morning. Check out what he had to say about the band:
It’s been a while and you know me, I gotta get my funk on! Sexy horns, raw vocals, smooth keys, all the nitty-gritty for your soul baby! And hot damn, do they got some serious soul!
You better ‘Try My Love‘ and get onboard of this soul train, ’cause it wasn’t easy to get this weeks Wednesday Q&A done! Funking up towns all over the US, that’s what they do, but I finally got Errol and Taye to give up some time to get down to do this funky stew. Ladies & People, I give you one of my favourite good god-ah soul bands, Roxy Roca.
We’re having a fun day at Clockright Studio with our good friend Jason Richard. We’re tracking a b-side today for our upcoming Christmas single, “It Ain’t Christmas Without You.” We can’t wait for you to hear it!
We had an amazing time playing for the 600+ costumed partiers at artinfusion’s annual Halloween in the Hollow party at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR. Many thanks to Mike Abb from Abboriginal Productions for these great photos from the party.
