The Illinois Entertainer Gives Us A Fun Review
We Are Actually Going To Put On A Couple Rock Shows

We just found out we took 2nd place in the pop category with "Looks Are For Free." You can check it out on their homepage or on the winners page for their fall/winter 2008 songwriting contest.  

This is a song that Greg Pare and I wrote together as an experiment through email. Greg played a huge role in this particular arrangement. I sent him this little acoustic track with ideas for melody, chord progression, and song title, and a few days later, he sends me back a slew of lyrics and this big idea of a production. The track also features stellar arrangements and performances from Kurt Hoffman on cello and Ken Thornton on the slide guitar solo. Don't tell anyone, but we recorded it in Garageband.

That seems like a good cause. Thank you Indie International.
