Finally, after a very long blog hiatus, we are going to start this thing up again! There is so much to share (for example, a complete description of our concept album "A Love Story"!), but for now we want to formally invite you to come to our show at Solid Grounds (see "shows" tab for details) to get a sneak peek as to what is coming next for The Simple Parade. See you all there, and I look forward to sharing much more in the months to come! Until next time...
More Details will be coming soon but, until then, here we are almost a year since our last blog post (in Colorado) and we are now posting about how God is moving us out to Colorado...You are just hilarious, God : )
Anywho, Colorado, here we come!
Today was the first day that Justin and I got in the studio to start recording our 4 song EP (coming in the next few months!). Shane, our producer, is awesome and we are stoked to get to work! Life isn't so rough with the incredible view of Downtown Denver, adorable dogs to keep us company and a producer ready to kick some serious folk-pop butt with The Simple Parade. Let the journey begin!
After a beautiful drive to Colorado, we finally made it, thanks to the comedic help of Jim Gaffigan ("Obsession", so hilarious) and John Mullaney ("The Top Part", always so good). Long night of driving, but we made it and are ready for bed! Good night/morning world!
After a delightful and short stay at the beautiful Wynn (so fun!) we took our adventure on the road to Colorado after shooting a little music video ("Telegraph"!)! With a few stops along the way we didn't arrive in Denver until 3:30AM, but oh, the beauty that we discovered was so worth the delay. The Heavens really showed off today. I will say no more and let these pictures say my thousand+ words : )
Zion was breathtaking...then we saw this...
...And then we watched. So much better than a movie! We stayed our here for an hour absolutely mesmerized by the Heavenly show. We would have loved to have stayed longer but the 6 hours left of our drive to Denver was calling. Sometimes life is worth every moment of the detours and delays. Reminding ourselves that we are so small and yet so loved to share in the beauty of moments like these!
Good morning! "To you and you, and you, and you..."! After our first (of 12+) successful (we hope!) acoustic video recordings (spoiler alert, it is Telegraph...you'll just have to wait to see it! Oh, the suspense!), these handsome gentlemen and I took a dip in the pool before departing on our drive on out to Denver.
WARNING: Justin and Trevor are shirtless in the following videos, so PG13 everyone. ; )
Let's start with how we wake-up every morning...
So, we know how to have a good time. Vegas was a quick stop but we made the most of it!
Driving along and enjoying the sights!
Why, hello you beautiful and/or handsome (whatever you are feeling like today) people!
Day 1 of our trip out to Colorado to record 4 of our new songs off our debut album began on Sunday, July 13, 2014 with a game of luggage Jenga that we totally won : ) The picture only allowed our "sexy" luggage to show face...it got real after that. I don't think our CRV could have packed one more thing once we were through loading up, but we got it all in. Small miracle for sure : )
...while Justin was put packing, I found a stack of tip money in a box and Trevor suggested I make it rain (which I totally nailed...you are supposed to do it 5 $1's at a time, right?), so I did then we realized that something magic happened in Slo-Mo.
