I'll just start at the beginning... This is my first blog post and I have no idea what I'm doing yet. What I can tell you is that I am glad for this new beginning. I wouldn't have made out alive on the trajectory that my life had taken.

The way in which I grew up took a very dark turn early and got much darker before getting better. It has taken a lot of work to get to the point to be able to talk openly about these things while performing. As Tess and I relate our lives to those who listen, I hope that instead of the darkness that I have felt, it can bring comfort and strength to those who also have found themselves in a place that they don't see an escape for. 

We completed a new song called "Should I?" which was written because my post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and Tess' anxiety were playing a metaphorical game of hide-and-seek. 

To be honest, this being my first ever blog post, that is about as deep as I feel I can get at the moment. I hope that you read this and find something valuable to yourself in it. Things will get better. Our music is not meant only to entertain but, hopefully, to reach those who are struggling.


Ex Libris,
