Well, today is January 10th, 2013! Never too late for a resolution, right? We’ve made quite a few resolutions this year, and we’re extremely excited. Especially because this year, 2013, we will release our sophomore album! (!!!) And hopefully with that release, we will perform all over NYC, all across the US, and all over the world! Even better yet…YOU will be able to listen to these sweet E&HC chansons whenever you want.
Not a shabby start to 2013, right? :)
BUT! Until then, we have a lot of planning, a lot of practicing, and a whole lotta new songwriting taking place. And! A few shows on the horizon (before the GIGANTIC CD RELEASE SHOW.) You can check them out to the right of this here blog, until then be sure to mark your calendars: Friday, February 1st for the Music & Comedy Show Earworm at UCBeast, then we’re back at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2 on February 25th, 2013 for a show chock full of new music. (And you can purchase those tickets now, if you’d like to ensure a spot.) Or, if you’re not on our email list, feel free to sign up just under our gigs calendar on the right of this screen, or find us on facebook and twitter, too! We’re fun!
Before we “log off,” we’d love to THANK YOU for your support. Thank you for reading this here blog post, Thank you for coming to our shows, Thank you for purchasing our music, Thank you for spreading the word about us, and THANK YOU for listening.

How can anyone not adore Björk?
A few weeks ago , I had the incredible opportunity to see and hear Björk perform live at the NY Hall of Science, as part of her Biophilia tour. As a musician, and a performer, it was one of the BEST performances I have ever seen. Surreal. In fact, I can’t really explain everything that happened that night, nor can I explain the apps that accompany each song on her latest album, so I’m going to direct you to this article on NPR’s website. From there, if you are interested in the musical instruments BJORK INVENTED, among other things, then pretty please watch this video. THANK YOU, BJORK. You are a genius, dancing above dazzling inspiration.
In other news… we’ll be performing in Stripped Stories at UCB Theatre on Thursday, March 8th, 9:30 pm! (tix only $5!) The Comedians included will be: Dave Hill, (HBO, Sundance Channel), Blaise Kearsly, (How I learned Series) and your HOT Stripped Stories hostesses, Giulia Rozzi & Margot Leitman. The theme of the evening is “Awkward Encounters”– NOT THAT WE’VE EVER HAD ANY.
oh, and did I tell you that we’ve started recording our second album?

Ladies! Gentlemen! We are excited to announce our next performance will be on SATURDAY, APRIL 30th, 7pm at ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL, STAGE 2! BUT! We have something to show you…
This photo was taken from our latest gig at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We had the opportunity to perform for the esteemed Bob Kerrey, and his wife Sarah Paley, in a celebration of his tenure as President of The New School. (Our alma mater!) Our band was asked to perform, and the evening also featured performances by the lovely Abigail Washburn, and The Steve Martin.
It was a gorgeous evening in a spectacular New York City landmark. We were thrilled, honored, and delighted to perform for such remarkable people. Thank you to Bob and Sarah for including “Erin and her Cello” in their celebration of The New School. We wish them joy in their adventures to come!
And to Mr. Martin– WE LOVE KING TUT! … almost as much as we love The Great Remember. :)
So! For those of you who could not attend our “Met Debut”…come check us out SATURDAY, APRIL 30th, 7pm at Rockwood Music Hall, Stage 2!
FREE! FUN! & FANCY!
