The Threshold & The Hearth.


Pledge TY Party

Good Friends, Family, and Supporters:

We’ve been hard at work for the last year writing, planning, and perfecting the details of our new album – The Threshold & The Hearth.  The album is essentially finished, and we couldn’t be happier with the results, but we have made a decision to postpone the album release until 2016.

While our initial plan had been to release this fall, we’re now in discussions about a potential distribution deal.  If this deal comes together, it will give us the opportunity to get the album heard by so many more people, sold through so many more outlets, and to give it the attention we feel it deserves.  As hard it is to wait, we’re asking our supporters to be patient as we see this through – to give this album the best possible release and set it up for success.  While details are still coming together, we know that it will be released sometime in early 2016.

Thank you for your support, patience, understanding. . .  (and – excitement! : )

Much love to you all.

Thanks To You – We Are Fully Funded


We are honored, humbled, blessed, relieved, thrilled and most of all grateful to each and every one of you who has helped us reach our funding goal for this new album!! Words can’t really describe how much your support means to us.

You can still pre-order our new album ‘HOME’ by visiting the Pledge Music website here.

We’re so grateful that you have continued on this journey with us.  Thank you so very much for your support, generosity, and LOVE.











Thankfully Yours,

Erin, Randall, TJ, Jon, Dan, and Jamie.
