Hi friends, our CD will be released in a couple of months.  Yay!  We have vocals to record on one track, some percussion to record and then some mixing - and then our first CD will be ready for mastering and printing!  Our friend Clint Morrison is helping with photography and design.  It will be a beautiful CD!  We will release the CD first, and then probably later release the album on vinyl LP.  Please support us.  Thanks!

Boa sorte!
