We were so happy and humbled to hear that our album 'North End Sky' was nominated for East Coast Music Association's 'Country Recording of the Year'. To be among this year's nominees is an honor. Thanks to everyone who continues to support our music! We can't wait for a couple of showcases at this years East Coast Music Week in Sydney. Cheers!
