We have additional members joining us for our future shows, which will include live video backdrop and sound-scape segues for an audio/visual experience that we think you will enjoy. We also have three new songs in the works that we plan to release as singles by the end of this summer or in the early fall and that will also appear on our sophomore album anticipated to be completed in late 2014.

Although I’m a bit obsessed with all that is Floyd and Gilmour, there is no doubt that I am fortunate to have and continue to live during same time as, IMHO, the greatest singer, songwriter, and guitarist that humanity has ever seen and heard. Thank you Mr. Gilmour for your ethereal, haunting, powerful and brilliant musicianship and please give us many more years of your genius.
