America Feels Great

Monday, February 15th 2015

“That sounds wonderful Jennifer,” Dad says after listening to me play him a song the other night.  “Do you ever go to any auditions or anything?”

Some open mics, a local TV station, but that’s it really.  “What do you mean?” I ask.

“You know, like on any of these shows.  Like… ‘America Feels Great!’?”

And with that, the name of a new band was born.  The band when my brother and I happen to get together and play.  Preferably with his amazing girlfriend, Sasha (working her magic on the washboard for starters).

Here is a tiny snippet of the first time we attempted our cousin Ed Bruce’s song about Mamas, Babies and Cowboys:


And here we are last night -live from the living room- after finally working out that tricky 2nd half of the 2nd verse, in our AMERICA FEELS GREAT debut!
