Kelsey here! Daron and I wanted to follow up after last week’s release of “Rapt in Bows” to thank you so very much for your incredible support.
We weren’t sure what people would think about it, as most of the folks listening to the music know us personally. Would we get a few pats on the head, or would people share our excitement for what we’re hoping to do and share with their friends? (Which is make music that we love, and that we’re proud to share.)
The response has been greater than we could have anticipated.
In the 5 days after the relase, we had 100 dowloads and 500 plays!! Family, friends, and strangers (YAY!) have listened and responded in the sweetest ways.
It’s been incredible.
So, we want to thank you for your support, and ask that you’ll bear with us over the next few months as we recover from the holidays (and the positively blinding speed with which we produced this EP – seriously, that’s another post… it was ridiculous), but we hope to have more new music for you this spring.
We hope that, in the mean time, you’ll continue to follow our recording process through facebook (link) and twitter (link), (we love posting pictures, and status updates while we’re in the studio) and that you’ll tell your friends as well.
Talk to you soon!
Today was a big day for us! We released our little EP into the world.
So far, the response has been incredible. So much encouragement and kindness from all of our friends and family. It’s a wonderful feeling.
This, our first release has been a distinctly home-made project. Arranged, recorded, mixed, mastered, and manufactured in our very own home.
It truly feels like a little bit of who we are has really been reflected in the project. Very gratifying.
Our (very) limited number of physical EP’s is one of the best parts of this release for us.
It makes our first run feel special, kitschy, and a bit of a bright fleeting moment.
We want to share that with one of our new listeners. (HA! You’re all new listeners.)
So, we’ll be giving away 2 physical copies of our EP, “Rapt in Bows” on our Facebook page.
Head on over for details!
For those of you who are wondering how we decided on our band name, we thought our blog would be a great place to explain our thoughts behind it.
We had a pretty incredible wedding. On a cliffside in Sedona, Arizona, with a breeze, and sunlight… that was slowly covered by fat, fluffy rain clouds.
It started as a mist, and ended up being a steady, but soft and gentle rain.
It could have been one of those moments that makes you cringe… at the loss of your “Plan A”.
But our wedding day rain brought us two bright rainbows, and made us confident that the rain hadn’t been a curse, but a very special gift.
When thinking about our music, and how we collaborate together, we had to face the idea that it’s really HARD to collaborate with your partner. Because collaboration requires each person fighting for the note, lyric, and beat that they feel is the right one.
But even in the musical battlefield, as the rain is pelting down, and we’re inevitably bickering over some small melodic enfraction, we hope that our collective name will remind us that just as the rain brought us joy on that day, the rain in this project could yield something even more beautiful.
