The Mays go to the Recording Studio in November!!

Lush folk strings and three-part harmonies await you this spring!

We invite you to join the fun and be part of our Kickstarter fundraiser.  We’ll keep you updated all along the way, and you’ll be the first to get the album hot off the presses in 2014!  We can’t wait to share these haunting and hopeful arrangments with the world!
