Richard and I rehearsed relentlessly, fine-tuning the shapes of our chords and voices to bring emotions and messages to life. The coffee house circuit was serious business, because for the most part, audiences...[more]

Using a Casio Tone, trumpet and her very own voice, Rearick constructs elaborate soundscapes with a Boss Loopstation. Guitarist Jon Hain (Coma Savants, Your Mom SRO) scribbles all over that with jangly, feedbacky, bursts of sound as David Fawcett (Your Mom, Mary Beautifuls) taps out a beat on his electronic drum pads.
