There’s a lovely write-up on the band and When You Left The Fire over at Yahoo Music. Check it out here and spread the word.
“Their music is the perfect soundtrack to a contemplative trip to a mountain cabin, an evening at home during a winter chill, or just if you want to feel a little serene wilderness in the city.”
Check out Scott and Will tomorrow on The Bob Edwards Show, playing live and discussing their experimental approach to music making. Tune in to Sirius XM Public Radio on XM 121/Sirius 205 at 8 AM (ET) on Thursday, August 11. Catch encore presentations at 9am, 10am, 3pm, 8pm, and 10pm on August 11 and 9pm on August 12.
