Perri says the group’s amended name more accurately reflects its collaborative nature and pays homage to the town in which it initially formed in 2014.

“I started this project by calling some of the best musicians I know, who also happen to be dear friends, to a handful of shows with me,” said Perri. “The remarkable chemistry experienced over the course of just a few short tours surprised us all. The decision was unanimous: ‘This is a real band. Let’s do it.’”

Addressing the group’s future plans, Bartholomew says is currently writing and recording more music, as well as scheduling both national and international dates.

“This has been a tremendously creative time for us, and everything is flowing and happening very naturally,” said Bartholomew. “We’ve been working hard non-stop, and it feels great – almost like we’re getting away with something. This is the all of us have always to be in.”
