D.I.Y. Rock Star Rewind: "Fall in my own pit /Even when I spot it." (November 2020)


Those are some of the lyrics from the title track, “Sugar Fit,” which kinda characterizes our current mood….


What the hell happened?! September is OVER!

Dang! I have written the newsletter message three times this month 😮 but couldn’t seem to get it together to get it to you. In fact, it wasn’t until this morning that I was able to get my head into the place where it felt right. So here it is.




My BIG message this time?

What’s been in my spirit lately is the spirit of discovering new paths, people, and therefore opportunities for our “Sugar Fit” album, and then to follow through on reaching out to people. We’ve been talking about how some of the people who we had thought were on this same path just stopped pressing in and stopped trying new things. That has been one of the most disappointing things, as we are often encouraged by some of the things that they seem to have learned and have exposed us to. We are vowing NOT to let that happen. Not to get weary in doing well and to pivot when necessary to execute ideas that motivate us to be our creative best.

Keep moving…

Finally, what we realize is that this is a marathon and not a sprint, meaning that, though we have released the record out into the world, this is JUST the beginning of the second half of our journey with this “Sugar Fit” album. And that each day from here on out is about getting into the ears of folks that dig this variety of funk music.

Are YOU an ally?

We have free download codes for music reviewers and complementary CDs for radio station deejays. And we JUST found out that we are on all your favorite streaming services, including Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon (among others). We’d love it if you’d come check us out and add us to your funk playlist. Finally, if you prefer the vinyl experience, we’re offering a vinyl pre-order, so that we can give you a beautiful 2-disk set with fill color art plus lyrics. It costs $40.
