Check out our session with this indie pop/rock group that got its start in Duluth from September 11, 2015. We talked about their latest project, Stories from the Road, a series of short documentaries highlighting inspiring stories of fans the band has met on tour. They also gave us some hints about their next album, due to be released song by song over the next few months along with an accompanying movie.
