it comes, you can't run, the best thing you can do is jump back!
Our excitement this week
centers on Jump Back!, a single in our latest album April's Empire.
We've just released its music video, directed and produced by our own Lorene Anderson
(sousaphone, voice). Check it out on YouTube.
In celebration of the music video, we've made
the Jump Back! MP3 available for FREE download. Download the free
tune here, and purchase the whole album as MP3s from CDBaby. This week (July 30 - Aug 3), CDBaby isn't taking
their cut on MP3 sales, so all your money will go staight into our band fund (the
fund that lets us tour and make albums). Both albums are up on CDBaby. Hooray.
is almost here!
Check us out next Saturday in Urbana.

our new special merch item for you: an April's Empire Garden seed mix. Grow a garden
of flowers featured in the title track of April's Empire. More details are on our
Love, and let it rain!

"April’s Empire...roars with an untouchable fierceness, then pauses to
bask in the sweetness of life. It’s playful, it’s soulful, and it’s
worth every minute." Annie Weisner, www.smilepolitely.com
"When I looked around,
I noticed that all conversation in the bar had stopped as all eyes were on the stage.
" Meric Ackerman, St. Louis Nightlife Examiner
"In the course of
an evening, you’ll hear airy wisps of ’60s Pop sweetness, Tin Pan Alley
ham, Blues swagger, Jazz and Ragtime swing, Gospel reverence, Motown Soul and Classical
precision, played with technical precision and jammy abandon." Brian
Baker, City Beat
