Sound Therapy - Free Tracks

I recently started a music therapy blog to talk about some of the things I have been exploring in this area.  I have downloads and some articles here too..  the site is:

I believe sound has the power to heal. As a musician I had always thought of music as art, and a way to entertain, but I have now started to look at music and sound in a new light.

During an experience with extreme anxiety, I found…

Art by Heather

A little while back, we were thrilled to present our music along with the artwork of Heather Wilkerson at a concert in Atlanta.  Heather painted 3 beautiful pictures that were inspired by our music!!  My personal favorite is the one she painted to our newest song "A minor funky" (pictured below). These pictures are much bigger in person and it's a bit hard to get the full scope on the computer screen.  Visit Heather's site to see the other pieces she has painted to out music and other…

Saw and heard this duo at Brown Street Club in Greenville, SC. This duo blew the house away.  Who ever is booking them needs to go to a whole new level.  They rock!  We attend a lot of live music  venues and I can't imagine a better experience  Probably need to be in the Gunter theater at the Peace Center or Handlebar of Cabin Stage at Merlefest.  They are that good.  Understand they will be in Saluda NC at Purple Onion.  Do not miss that show as that may be the last of the tiny venues for…

We are offering that album for the holidays here, so if you'd like to give Montana Skies as gift this year, here's a link for purchases. We are also…

The Flying Cello

I flew back to Milwaukee for a concert at the University of WI in Kenosha this weekend and I thought I’d tell you a little about packing, checking, and flying with my acoustic cello.  My electric cello is small enough that I bring that on board as my carry on.  Occasionally, I am able to buy an extra seat for the cello, but most of the time I use the flight case here.


Here is the process I use for flying with my cello:

Sessions via the Web

We recently started using Skype on the road to stay in touch with family and friends back home. As the video and sound quality on the internet have improved we both thought it would be a great way to work with musicians who might want learn more about our styles of playing.


Sharing our thoughts and ideas on music is something we've always loved to do, but we haven't had time to keep a teaching studio going in one geographic spot. The best thing about Skype is we can do it…

New Track "Another Brick" Studio Version

Good Morning!  We have a new studio track waiting for you here.  Another Brick in the Wall:

This track is one we decided to do years ago after listening to a lot of Pink Floyd while driving around on tour.  At that time, we were listening mostly THE WALL and DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.  

The themes, the music, the engineering…

Hey Jenn and Jonathan

I met you at the Alanta airport around the 20th of December, 2006 or 2007. I had a three hour layover between Portland OR and São Paulo SP Brazil. You blew me away! Jenn, you had just gotten your electric cello and you were having so much fun, dancing and stomping around. I especially remember a medley of The House Of the Rising Sun, The Devel Goes Down to Georgia, and a third song lost in my memory. Sorry Jonathan, I fell in love with Jenn that evening. I have never seen such energy, and I…
