The band consists of Michael Martin of guitar and vocals, Heather Marie on ukulele and vocals, Josh Hatfield on bass and drums and Caryn Egan on viola. The band is currently plotting out their 10 year tour, and booking shows on the Appalachian Trail!
"In country music, it's always good to have a good looking singer like Collins or a gravel voice , Johnny Cash character like Martin to keep the audience going. On Saturday, there was both as Martin sang Old Building while Collins also has a tune called Shiny Red Apples while playing her ukulele. For Egan, who just graduated that morning from Ball State University, the release meant a new beginning as a band member after she considered a music teaching profession. Her talent is natural, playing the viola as a child," - The Muncie Free Press
