Here’s a quote from the Capitol Hill Times interview by Stephen Miller-
“The Hidden Rose” is a solid effort in composition, performance and recording. The album pulls, pretty effortlessly, both from Graham’s days in hardcore punk and more recent interests in melodic pop and Fleet Foxes-esque indie folk. The arpeggiated electric guitars, lilting vocal swoons and thin-cymbaled drum kit give “Rose” a tinge of Buckley’s “Grace.” And Graham’s tenor is as comfortable hovering above acoustic guitar strumming in a light falsetto as it is projecting over a weave of overdriven telecasters.
In promotion of our CD release show on Sunday January 20th, we’re releasing a free download from The Hidden Rose.
The song is Captured Moment, and can be downloaded for free!
The very talented Charissa Bangs designed special cover art for the release. I love how the colors capture the fun, light, and joyous feelings found in the song. You can view her branding and design work here
Hope you make it out to the show if you’re anywhere near Seattle, WA! Details for the show and tickets can be viewed here

The Sunset was a great show. A surprising number of our friends came out on a Tuesday night. I feel so supported! We also got to open for The Forms. They are the real deal. Strait out of NYC, they’ve shared the stage with The National, Deer Hunter, Minus The Bear…The list goes on. It was fun playing a rad show with a rad band.
Finally, our road trip down to Portland was a blast. I got to hook up with some old friends, and spend lots of time with my band mates. They are so talented and so kind. I’m very thankful for them!! We also enjoyed some of the best coffee of our lives at Coava.
Shout out to Ryan Harter for letting us stay at your place. He was also kind enough to shoot an impromptu video of an unreleased song: Hope is Where The Heart Is
