Breaking 12 news from Ron 

Hi all.  I hope you like our latest release "Hail to the Queen."  This was a great song from Aileen and I to put together and it was my first attempt to record and produce from beginning to end.  All guitar parts for "Hail..." were recorded by a dear friend Pete Ilenda. He is an amazing guitarist and we are lucky to have him recording with us.  Pete and I met back in the mid 80's in a local collage Jazz Band.  Yes Jazz!  Even though we played Jazz we always tried to set aside time to rock out!  To me, his…

All about Faith 

Warning- deep and thoughtful psychoanalysis ahead!!! LOL.

I find it sad to witness people/friends cling with all their might to something or someone that is bad for them and makes them unhappy in many ways. (Or doesn't love you back) Although this something or someone makes them hurt and feel less than worthy every day, they will hold on for fear of change and of the fear that things will not be better then it is.
If you really look around you, you will find that through each tough time awaits…

Thank You! 

 Singing in front of a group is nothing new, and you think we would be used to what we sound like, but playing live and then actually hearing yourself and the music you've created being broadcasted over the speakers throughout a popular venue for the first time is a totally different experience!  It sounds so weird at first and mind blowing to hear your songs over the loud speakers.  

You get this feeling of being nervous and anxious at the same time and then it becomes a moment of pure awesomeness…

INSPIRATIONS 

People always ask me how I become inspired to write, and write with convincing emotion.  I guess I could never really pinpoint one thing that inspires me when writing lyrics.  My inspirations come from many different situations, places, sounds, sights, people, experiences, emotions etc...  But once inspired, my emotions take over and my thoughts and words haunt me until I make them come alive and project them into my writing.  Each different inspiration brings about different emotions in myself and…
