Beautiful and True

“Beautiful And True” is not just our third album – it’s a new start for us. Our first album in Portland, Oregon. Our first album out and living as our real selves. 

We’ve poured a lot of ourselves into the music you’re going to hear on this album, and we hope it brings you as much joy to listen to as it gave us to make it. 

It’s so very good to be here. <3
