Interview 1, Part 1



They posted this notice that we had to leave, well leave the whole area, but then we got a notice—a twelve day notice or something—to pack up. One suitcase per person and be ready at a certain location, and a bus will come and pick you up. And they pick us up. And then they took us to Walerga. 
Outside of McClellan Field they had a temporary housing project—not a “housing project” but a camp. It was bungalows, it was…I don’t know if it was a wooden cot, I think it was a wooden cot or a canvas cot…instead of metal one. And then they gave us a mattress-size bag to fill it up with straw.


And this is at the first camp?


Yeah, first camp. So that’s what we did. And I don’t remember how long we were there. Maybe one month? Maybe a couple weeks?



What did you do with all the stuff that didn’t fit in your one suitcase?


Why, you couldn’t take it. You just had to, just leave it.



Leave it in…storage?

No! Oh, well, his is different than mine…You see everybody had a different situation.

Announcement: Shadow Paths



It is with much excitement that I officially announce the start of my new project, Shadow Paths (watch the video!). I will be posting updates and content here as well as on all my social media, and while I will try to keep things consistent across all platforms, it's probably best if you just follow me on all platforms--just in case. 😜

Thank You!


A huge thank you to Linnaea's Cafe, Backyard Coffee Co., and East Village Coffee Lounge for hosting Poeina and myself this past weekend! And another huge thank you to everyone who came out to support and join us on our crazy adventure!

You hear artists say it all the time, but we really are nothing without our fans, be they family, friends, venues, or random passerby's. Every CD bought or button worn or smiling face in the crowd is appreciated--perhaps even more so as we try to break through to the stars.

Thank you! Keep rocking with us. We'll keep playing.
