Harvey’s Kitchen — Seahorses

23 Comments 23 Mar, 2009

Emily MooreJustin Huey.  Prolific musicians from Charlotte, NC.  They brought themselves and a Rhodes piano into our kitchen and reminded us of the reason why we ventured into this project.  Simple.  Honest.  Music.  Our cat was sick at the time, and while we relaxed with a glass of wine or two and ate General Tso’s chicken we compared cat stories and wished each other well.  One evening after this recording a few friends came over and one in particular donated two microphones to our venture.  Thank you Adam.  This recording isn’t everything, but it’s a beginning.  Thank you Emily.  Thank you Justin.
