Play with us on tour!

Our Summer 2011 Tour is underway! We have two weeks left of sharing music with you, our lovely friends! I was struck with a great idea this week, and I wanted to issue an invitation to you!

PLAY MUSIC WITH US! I have scored string arrangements for two of our songs, “I Will Go Plant Little Flowers” and “Dawn Awakes”, and have loaded them on our facebook page as photos. If you are a good string player and would like to perform live with us on this tour, print out the parts, practice with the recording (which you can also stream live at, and email me! We’ll set up a practice time for the show. If you can send us a video or recording of you playing so that we know you’re legit, that would be great too!

We’re open to other instruments as well, just message me about it! You can reply to this email and it will go straight to me!

Here is the music:

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
