Thank-You, MusicNB!

Holy smokes.

We’re still staggering a bit from the end of October. Wind-swept and wowed, we walked away from MNB Festival 506 with 4 awards won, out of 6 nominations:

Album of the Year – The Hypochondriacs In 3/4
SOCAN Song of the Year – In 3/4 (Josh Bravener)
Emerging Artist of the Year
Country Artist of the Year

The nominees in these categories were nothing to sneeze at. We’re so darned appreciative and thankful for the recognition, and the experiences we had at Festival 506. We spoke with some fantastic people, shared the stage with stellar ensembles, and generally allowed ourselves to feel a wee bit proud. Oh blustery Caraquet, you blew our minds & hearts.

Got those statuettes set up on the ol’ garage mantel, right where we can look to them for love and encouragement as we get crackin’ on new music!

Mon Dieu. Merçi Merçi Merçi beaucoup, once again.

Album Release Party – September 9th!

We’re getting so excited for our album release party on the Capital Complex patio this Saturday! We’ll be releasing our debut album, “In 3/4”, and we’re joined by two of our favourite New Brunswick acts.

Opening the show is Moncton’s The Galpines, a 4-piece country bluegrass outfit with such ridiculous hits as “Drunk Tank” “#BLESSED”, and “My Dog is Better Than Your Baby”. Not to be missed! And after our performance on the patio, join The Tortoise, The Hare & The Millionaire inside the Capital for the after-party show.

Did we mention we’re performing on the Capital patio? You’ll be able to hear the show all through the Tannery, and see glimpses from any rooftop around (notwithstanding the cloudy forecast). It’s looking to be a very special night, and we hope you’ll come celebrate this big moment with us.

Tickets are $12, and can be purchased here: TICKETS

Our album is streaming this week on the Coast (Halifax), listen here: ALBUM STREAM

Here’s the facebook event link: FACEBOOK EVENT

We’ll be selling vinyl ($20), t-shirts ($20) and CDs at the show, so bring some extra cash. See you Saturday!
