It was so amazing to have been able to play with Hive Riot at the Utah Pride Festival last weekend! I wish we had a picture to capture the complete JOY I was feeling from everyone dancing their hearts out in the audience. It is fans like these who give our music meaning and make preforming it beyond fun!

Undercover Music Video Release

“Step out from behind the shadows. Shake your shame and all your sorrow. Take your place and dance out in the sun. No one should live undercover. No one is above the other. Freedom is a gift for everyone.” So proud to release the music video for this song today.

Habitat for Humanity

Women Build

Several weeks ago, I put a call out for women volunteers to come build a house as part of Habitat for Humanity‘s National Women Build Week. The group filled up immediately and we came together today to help Crystal Long build a home for her and her two children. This amazing family recently lost their dad. I was so moved by Crystal’s gracious persona and work ethic in the face of such a loss. So empowering and inspiring. A million thanks to all the women who came to build today and to Habitat for teaching us building skills and organizing this event. Read the Daily Herald article here.

Fix the Fox

Cory

At the epicenter of the music scene in Utah, there is Velour Live Music Gallery. And the genius and dear friend behind Velour is Corey Fox. Other than hosting all of our shows, he has also done the art direction for many music videos of Utah based artists (as well as many well known bands outside of Utah). Corey has helped all of us and now it’s our turn to help him. You see, right now he could really use a kidney. He is on a long wait list and he is at a point where time is of the essence.

On April 29th and 30th Velour will be hosting a two-night benefit concert featuring some of its most successful artists. Neon Trees and Imagine Dragons will take the stage Friday April 29th. Tickets go on sale April 23rd from 2-5 pm at Velour for $300. Saturdays performance will include The Moth & the Flame and Fictionist (Tickets are on sale now here.) Ticket sales will contribute to Corey’s surgery costs and to help support Velour while closed this summer.

Monetary donations are also extremely helpful at this time. Read how you can help here.

We love you Corey!
