Standing at the threshold of the unknown, we bid adieu to the Year of Our Lord 2016… There is so much to say about this tumultuous and beautiful year in the rear view. There are ends and new beginnings coming for this husband and wife band. However, for the time being, we will refrain from reflective commentary as our art steeps in the questions at hand. For intents and purposes, this digital letter is an offering... a prayer... we the beneficiaries of a gift attempting to pay forward the music and the legacy of comrades as they "spun off the earth" (in the words of my mother) and we embark on another trip around the sun.
Goodbye David, may you find peace in the coral sands of Mars. Goodbye Leonard, I hope you heard that divine chord as your eyes lifted to the sky. To our friends and family... we love you and hope this note finds you with gold in your hearts and eyes as you look to the new year.

Happy New Year, Peace & Love
