New tracks from Jessy & Denise

Here are a couple new tracks that Jessy & Denise have been working on.


The bread makin' song (there is an actual title that I can't remember right now, and my disorganized self has already lost the track list Jessy gave me...):

The afore-mentioned name of Tight Like Flight is a work in progress at this point. It may change, so I'll be sure to update with a new name whenever it comes. A couple people have already asked about buying CDs; they don't have a CD out just yet, but they will, and I'll update when that's available.

Posting tomorrow: Pictures and video from the Neighbor By Neighbor showing & music at Guthrie's on Friday night.

Arborea, Big Blood, Tight Like Flight (the newly partnered duo of Jessy Kendall & Denise Dill...), will all be performing. Perhaps others that I haven't heard about, too, I'm not positive.
