Hello Everyone!

We are incredibly honoured, proud and excited to announce that we are the first runners-up in the 2011 LIVE 88.5FM BIG MONEY SHOT and recipients of $40,000 of development funds! We are also excited to announce our very good friends, The Love Machine, took the grand prize and walked away with $50K! As you know, the grand finals took place Friday, November 18th at St. Brigid’s in Ottawa, ans what a great night it was! Shawn Scallen and Eric Wehrle ran a flawless night and Wall Sound did an amazing job on light and sound. We’d like to thank Bryan Ruckstuhl for tracking the entire night for your future enjoyment! The venue was absolutely stunning inside and out! Check out some of the shots Shaughn Anderson took that night:

And now, here are some of our faves from our performance:

What an incredible night! So, what else is going on? Well, if you missed our appearance on Clarence Street Live, Tom Shock’s hilarious new show on Rogers Cable 22 Ottawa, there is a re-run at 10:30pm, Tuesday! We play some new songs acoustically and do an interview with our pal, Chelsea Miller! We had a great time doing it, and we think it’s pretty obvious!

What’s up, Toronto!? We will be down at the Rancho Relaxo, 300 College at Spadina, on December 2nd and are playing with the venerable Mother Leads and Will Conquer! It’s always a blast at the Rancho, especially when Dan Wolovick and Two-Way Monologues are putting on the show! Doors are at 9, so get there early and have a Molson Stock Ale and a shot of Jameson with us! Click here for the facebook event.

We will be playing an acoustic show at Rooster’s Coffeehouse, Carleton University, on Nov 25th in support of WaterCan, Please come check it out!

Hearts&Mines is beginning to track our sophomore full-length album in early December. We are excited to get the brand new tunes out to you! You have been loving them live, we just can’t wait to hear them recorded. Check in with us on facebook often for updates!

Thank you all again for your continued support and we look forward to sharing further successes with you!
