    Holy cow. Well, I can't say much more except that you're effing brilliant. I listened to your first track. There was so much energy in that song...I can't even describe it. I am moving to the Charlotte, NC area soon, and I am hoping I get to catch a performance...because I am almost certain you guys are fantastic live. You got a page recommendation from me, and I also shared you on the Facebook group Folk Music Movement. Outstanding stuff!
