This period has been a difficult time for many, but through it all we've been so thankful to be together. We hope that this music encourages you, and helps us all put all our troubles away."

    For now the release is available as a pre-order in digital format only on Bandcamp.


    From the EP, Tabitha's composition "Finn's Rescue."

      Sounds great, looking forward to hearing it. Our son Finn was born just before the lockdown. I guess he sort of rescued us!

      Gordon Lightfoot and fresh eager together talent! Doesn't get much better than that. I was waiting for the segue into "Ribbon of Darkness," though...

      Thanks for bringing good loving energy to the world!

      Just listened to Finn’s Rescue and loved it! I hadn’t known the back story of being stranded in Ireland due to the pandemic! Wow, you surely made the best of your time creating this original, inspiring music.
