John & Tanya - Werewolf Night

This is from our JUST released album, The Story Is Everything. We're trying to beat a crazy deadline and sell 17 CDs before the end of the day tomorrow (Thursday, May 17). If we do it, we can bring physical discs to the Kerrville Folk Festival next weekend. Here's the link, should you happen to feel generous. Thanks for listening!

Untitled

A short melodic snippet I've been playing around with in need of a nice lyric. If anyone has one that fits, I'm all ears.

Stay Away

A short, pretty, desperate conversation about need and rejection. Plus arpeggios!
