Michelle's mixed media artwork was made with alcohol ink, photography, assemblage and graphic design. Jim Carter (our recording engineer's brother) did the astro photography background.

Music Rules the World is here!

This album has political overtones in the language of music. Politics have been a big part of our current times. As musicians, we have the gift to be able to yell, scream, dream, love through our music. You won't hear any controversial political noise. Just feelings we have channeled.
As it became safe to rehearse during the 2020 Covid pandemic, Dan Gildea, Michelle and Ben Medler (& Bootsy dog) met weekly to compose, jam and rehearse new tunes, concepts and sounds. We added Jason Palmer to the band, his drumming brings exciting textures, huge fills and grooves! Please enjoy!

'Don’t Talk Smack! Watch your back! Don’t be Wack!' When Bootsy hears this song, he tilts his head, sometimes he sings along! He really likes how the guitar travels between the right and left speaker! Check it out in some headphones!
