Tour begins in three days
The tour begins in three days. I’m out of my apartment, I’ve been living out of my two bags for about two weeks, and my Chicago life has been stored away in two bins and a suitcase. Charlie’s packed our stuff away in Madison, and is currently up there hanging with his father before Daddy Cheney has heart surgery. My grandma had heart surgery a couple weeks ago, and sends good vibes and strong pulses. This sudden reminder of mortality and anatomy has had us thinking a lot about intimacy and heart healthy diets.
WE HEART YOU. STAY ALIVE SO WE CAN LOVE YOU MORE:
One of the incentives for our Insanity Fund (throwing quick cash our way just to give us a hand on the road) is for your taste buds! If you want, we’ll send you show posters with recipes on the back. These recipes are 100% the result of experimentation and Charlie’s willingness to be my culinary guinea pig. But they’re delicious. I wouldn’t give you a shitty recipe. C’mon now (and yes, we eat vegetables for breakfast).
EYE CONTACT AND INTIMACY. BETTER THAN NETFLIX AND CHILL:
We love to laugh and smile and talk to people and learn people’s stories and we want to communicate that more on stage. Our natural instinct is to close our eyes in a blissful move to preserve our own pristine sonic world free from visual distraction. Sometimes it’s easy for a musician to forget that the experience is theatrical as well as musical, and we get carried away wanting to give you the best technique without the emotional connection. We’re going to work on this. Let us know how we’re doing. We want to woo you.

Have you checked out FAWM: February Album Writing Month 2016? Charlie and I are not only having individual profiles, where we have to write 14 songs in 29 days, but also as Sugar Still. This means 21 songs EACH in February. Stay tuned for videos and demos from the road.
