Hope everyone is doing great....we've been busy in the studio working on our album, can't wait for you all to hear it! I wanted to give you a heads up about a show that we're very excited about - we'll be playing Wednesday, December 10th at The Mint with the Zac Brown Band (www.myspace.com/zacbrownband). For those of you who aren't that familiar with country music, these guys are huge - they've got the #3 country single right now, "Chicken Fried," behind Carrie Underwood & Taylor Swift - Plus they're from my hometown - Atlanta, so I'm very excited to be playing with them. And they've got an awesome live show.....they play at 8:00 and we go on after them at 10:00. If you tell them you're there to see BrokeDown you can get in for eight dollars (otherwise it will be twenty)! The club is at 6010 W. Pico Blvd, at the corner of Crescent Heights and Pico, and it's 21 and up. It's gonna be a fun night - hope you can make it!

We played The Mint last Tuesday and I'm posting a couple of brand new songs from the show- hope you like them!! Just FYI- during the first song, you'll see me reaching behind my back several times....Randy and I wear in-ear monitors when we play so that we can hear our vocals, and I was having trouble with the volume on mine, although maybe I should just make that my signature move, hmmm?

Hey guys! So, we had a show last Wednesday (August 20th) at The Mint....it was a lot of fun and thank you to everyone who came out to see us! I'm posting some clips from the show.....the sound is a little funky so I apologize for that! The last clip is me singing with Michael O'Neill - he's an amazing musician and also just such a nice person - after the show, Randy and I had a little love fest about Michael and how cool he is. Anywho, his band played after us and he pulled me up onstage to sing along to his new single, so much fun. His website for the new cd is whosbadnow.com, you should definitely check it out! Hope you enjoy the songs!

Hey everyone! So...we were long overdue to take some new photos, so we rounded up our go-to photographer - the amazing Inda Reid, and Samantha Brooke - make-up artist extrordinaire...and headed out to the desert - to El Mirage dry lake bed to be exact. It was about a two hour drive from L.A., so Randy stocked us up with some food and drinks and we headed out. I took my camera with me with every intention of documenting the photo shoot, however, it was about 110 degrees, the wind was insane, and it was all we could do to keep our eyes open for the photos - the lake bed is almost white, so the reflection is intense. I did get some footage that I find pretty funny though, so I put together a little video that you'll find below. Despite the crazyness, the photos came out amazing! I must say, Inda is a mad genius! If you ever need photos, head to www.indafoto.com, she can do pretty much anything, no joke. She is also just a really cool person - I can vouch for that cause, well, I live with her. She's my roommate. How lucky am I? We had a lot of fun, it felt almost like we were off camping, well actually I've never looked that good while camping, but anywho- we headed home tired, sunburned, and stuffed full of goldfish and string cheese.....and of course went straight to Senior Fred's for margaritas. It was a good day.

Is freaking AWESOME!! Randy & I are so happy to have these guys with us. Randy used to be in a punk band called HighSchool Logic, and Danny Reuland (far left) was his drummer, so we brought him onto this project. He's a great drummer and the ladies love him! He's gonna kill me for saying that.... Randy had also played with our bass player - Jeff LeGore, (second from right) in a band called Pretty Sneaky Sis, and Jeff plays in a band called Psychedelic Cowboys with our guitar player, Don Ian (far right). Did that all make sense? Anyway, we're thrilled to be playing with them.
So, to catch you up - here's a little about us... my partner- Randy Dunham- and I met several years ago at Burbank Bar & Grille, he was playing a resident gig there as an acoustic duo with a girl, and I joined him when his partner headed off to Broadway. We began playing together and discovered a mutual love for country music (I'm from Georgia and his family's roots are in Oklahoma), and began writing songs. Just this past fall of '08, we headed to Atlanta to record with Jan Smith, a kickass vocal producer, and recorded a 4 song EP. In February, director Andy Fickman heard us play and asked for a demo- a week later he asked us to write a dance song for him. We did, and he then offered us a role in Disney's Race To Witch Mountain, which he directed. We had a ball on the movie- we recorded 5 songs with producer Jamie Houston, and were also featured in a performance sequence - we are the band in the Honky Tonk Bar...and we got to work with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The movie has opened a lot of doors for us, and we are now playing out at all the LA venues and some outside of LA as well. We've got a lot of things cooking, we're working our tails off, and we're lovin every minute!
