Dearest Rainbow Seekers! Our new record, Paper Castle, is out now! It's our 4th record over nearly 8 years of being a band. I wanted to thank you all, from the deepest and dankest part of my heart, for supporting us all of these years. Music has brought so much to my life - and has long been my tether to the this world. It's how I communicate and connect and it provides me with a profound sense of joy and meaning. All things are on a bell curve. Someday, sooner or later, I will step off the stage for the last time. We all will. But today is a beautiful day and I plan on enjoying, to the fullest, the moments I've been graciously given. A link to record is below! Thank you for being a part of this incredible journey. Let's keep it going 😀 Love, Joe ps... if you'd be so kind as to hit that little share button, I'd be wildly appreciative 🙂

We have a new single out today y’all! It’s called Passing Through and it is my favorite song on this forthcoming record. It can be challenging at times, when making songs, to make the pieces fit, to say what you want to say. But this one just simply came together without effort. You feel a certain way - and the next thing you know that feeling turns into a song. I hope you dig it! Also, Paper Castle comes out on May 31st. Pre orders are now available at ☺️❤️🌈🤙🏽

New Song Alert! It's called "Last Two Dinosaurs Alive"... a story about two close friends enjoying a spiritual journey somewhere in Northern California. Hope you dig it! And if you do, remember that sharing is caring. You can stream the song here: By the time you are reading this, a few of us in the band will be doing some winter camping/hiking for next few days. If you happen to be in Manistee National Forest this weekend, keep an eye our for a guy in full winter camo. Although, I might be very difficult to spot, because my camo game is strong. Peace!
