The Grass Gypsys: What's Up

Songs and Snow: Feb 2015 - February 19, 2015

Colleen here - sitting by the window of our Boston apartment with a cup of tea and our slung, sleeping babe. Looking out the window at a world transformed from a record breaking snowfall. It's been a time to be at home and nest. This by its virtue, brings Justin and I together for some songwriting. We've both been coming up with ideas that have been cross-referencing all the genres and possibilities. Looking forward to sharing the new music. Stay tuned
