So far this winter has been really fun. We've played out-doors in 35 degrees, shared the stage with some of our great friends and met some new ones. How cool is this !! For a few hours our song "Oil and Water" landed on the Itunes top 40 new releases in the Americana genre. Thanks to everyone who downloaded it. Now if we could just get it to STAY in the Top 40!!!! We're workin' on that....
The adventure continues...8 dead skunks and 2300 miles round trip from Seattle to Sundance Wyoming for the Sundance Beer Festival. It so was great to play for the "hometown" crowd. Can't wait to come back next year. It was also the first tour for the newest member of our Dogma tribe. We'd like to welcome Radmilla as our new fiddle player.
We are really looking forward to our next show September 25th at High Dive with Danny Newcomb and the Sugarmakers along with Hella Sunshine this will be a packed house for sure.

So, here's the story...Sunny Divide is a little roadside gas station with a house, ranch hand cabins and an old one room schoolhouse along Highway US-14 by Devils Tower Wyoming. Located on my Aunts land the buildings are currently vacant. As a young boy I used to play around the old barns and buildings, I really don't know where the story comes from other than my overactive imagination. But the story I heard (imagined) was that it was once owned by an older couple who's demise was a murder/suicide. Apparently the husband killed his wife then turned the gun on himself. Now, I was a young kid and my older cousins would have camp outs where we would tell ghost stories and maybe this was one of the tales they crafted to scare me. (it didn't work) I wrote this song around that fairy tale. "The Zim" filmed the live footage in Snohomish Washington at The Hawthorne. I shot footage of an abandoned house in my neighborhood. The old man with the gun is my father-in-law. We shot this because the song is licensed to the Pro Bull Riders Assoc. for a a video game and they asked for a video. Since we didn't have one we figured it was about time. Here are the results. Enjoy. http://youtu.be/CJmZOmCbnW4?list=UUtnhvNV-xgDdvvfvMME0X4A
