1 Band. 1 Year. 52 Songs. 12 Charities. It’s pretty simple really, we’re going to release a song a week for the next year for free on our site. If you feel compelled to support the project beyond listening/enjoying/sharing, we’ve partnered up with 12 amazing causes we believe in (they’re featured on our DONATE page.) Think of it as our version of a marathon.

Ok, let’s get nerdy. First off, not all of us are living in Brooklyn anymore. The band is more of a collective now, with studios across the country from Boston to Chicago to Brooklyn to LA and beyond. Fortunately for us, we’re huge nerds and collaborative software has evolved to a point where a project like this possible. It's really hard to imagine how we would coordinate composition, arrangement, tracking, editing, and mixing between 4+ studios without Dropbox, Evernote, Google Hangouts, and Logic (so thank you to the engineers who worked on these services. We love you - a lot.)

We know the project might sound a little crazy, but it actually wasn't something we had to deliberate over or convince each other to sign up for. There were two choices: stop making music together, or adapt. There was no real consideration of the first option, so the project was born of necessity. We're excited and also a little terrified about what lies ahead. But we think we can pull it off, and we hope some good songs come out of it.

Charity partners include: Charity Water, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Musicians on Call, Cause Effective, Rosie’s Place, Camp Interactive, Old Town School of Folk Music, Housing Works, The Trevor Project, Para Los Ninos, and
