Comprised of multi-instrumentalist David Satori (Beats Antique) and Evan Fraser (Dogon Lights, Bolo), Mark Reveley (Jed and Lucia), the result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness. ... more

Track Name: The Well (feat. Rising Appalachia)
LYRICS:

woke up and the well was dry
27 vultures in the sky
i don't know when and i don't know why
this is the year that the well went dry

i ate dust and dirt too many days
if i don't get a drink someone's gonna pay
the trees all died and withered away
wild fires came and set them all ablaze

i don't know how much longer i got
time to hit the road and find another spot
when the rain comes it all washes away
we lift our heads and this is what we say

the ranch is run down to the bone
and i can't get a god damn loan
i'll dig this hole till the day i die
this is the year that the well went dry

i don't know how much longer i got
time to hit the road and find another spot
when the rain comes it all washes away
we lift our heads and this is what we say

poison steals my last breath
rattle snakes can eat my flesh
it was a rough ride until the end
but you know i'd do it again

i don't know how much longer i got
time to hit the road and find another spot
when the rain comes it all washes away
we lift our heads and this is what we say
