Back in the Saddle

Things have been hectic round these parts what with an epochal wedding party and international vacationing, but at last things are settling back into a musical groove. Check out some country sounds this week in Brooklyn. Then we will have some eastern tinged cosmic folk from the Speer duo to tickle the ears of those residing in the northern reaches. Let the sounds rain down!

December travels upcoming

Been quiet on the Speer front of late, after roaming around quite a bit the 1st half of the year, but we will be dusting off our boots and getting out on the road for a long weekend of sorts in middle December. Gonna hit some towns we have never ventured to before so that is great. Big thanks to Joe Fletcher for asking us to out with him for this jaunt. The beautiful Brown Bird will also be appearing at all 4 of these gigs so be ready for killer songsmiths all night long!
