JUNO Award Nomination and New Album Pre-Sale

January 27th, 2015
Hey Everybody!

We just found out that our latest album WICKED, has been nominated for a JUNO AWARD!  For our Non-Canadian friends, this is the Canadian version of the Grammy Award.  We are all incredibly excited and couldn’t be happier to have our album recognized.  As many of you know, we travelled to Austin, Texas to work with Billy Horton at his studio Fort Horton and we’d like to give Billy a big Thank You for all of his faith and hard work on this project.  Although we all put our hearts into Wicked, Lindsay wrote the majority of the material on this album and arranged all of the songs including the two covers chosen and really spearheaded the idea of working with Billy at all.  It couldn’t have went better, Thank you Lindsay!  We’d like to congratulate all the other nominees in our category as well!  The Junos will be held March 15th, 2015 in Hamilton, Ontario.

Now, onto new business.  As you know we’ve just finished a new album again recored with Billy at Fort Horton.  Many of you had interested in a Pre-Sale for the release so we’ve setup a PayPal service for just that.  Simply click the “Buy Now” button below to Pre-Buy the new album and we’ll ship an advanced copy signed by all of us right to your door as soon as it is available.

Be sure to include your shipping address in your order!

Wicked has been in rotation on hundreds of stations around the world and was just recently featured by House of Blues Radio as the “Blues Breaker of the Week” as well as a #1 charting on the Baker’s Dozen Blues Charts.  Big thanks to all the stations and DJs playing the new material.  We feel as if it’s the best we’ve ever sounded.
