I write them for free, perform them for free (if it's for an event or a loved one perhaps), stream them for free, and you can download the mp3 on a pay-what-you-wish basis (no minimum).

Words first, always. That doesn't mean that I always start with the lyrics, but it does mean that I can easily form a song around an idea, concept, or hook.

Thanks soooo much! February would be perfect! When do you think you'd want to come up to the Jersey/NYC area? We're looking at march or april for booking around us again, but I can't remember if I said that to you already. How about email me at Kiirstin@unukarecords.com so we can talk about this more proper and I can have the guy who does a lot of our booking in on this convo as well : )

Haha oh thanks. We were actually looking for a DC act to book with to do a show-swap type of deal. We have an act already out of Rhode Island, you can actually find her here on T61: Shannon Corey. She knows an act from Philly and we are NYC/NJ. We would all book in our areas and help the other bands with shows there. Long story short we would love to come to DC! : )
