WATCH AND LISTEN WHILE YOU READ
Everything affects everything. When we are on the road, literally anything can be a source for inspiration. From things you see out the van window, to people you meet, and experiences you have. The best inspiration comes from the most unexpected places.2. Does the album have a theme?
If Tornillo has a theme, to me it would either be hope, or progress, but I’m sure it would be different for each band member, and different for each listener.3. Fort Collins will be one of 5 Colorado stops on your national tour. Have you played in Fort Collins before? What are you looking forward to most about playing at Washington’s?
We have played Ft. Collins but never Washington’s. We are looking forward to rocking new tunes in a fresh room!
4. You are getting quite the fan base. What do you have to say to someone who comes to see one of your shows?
Thank you! We love you!
5. When someone comes to see one of your shows, what should they expect?
If you are planning on coming to the show, you can expect 90 minutes of authentic expression. No gimmicks, just five humans with a message to share, and a safe space to enjoy yourself with other like minded music lovers. Come express yourself with us!
Recorded at Sonic Ranch studio and inspired by the great outdoors, Tornillo paints a picture of longing for home, missing loved ones & all the tribulations that come from spending years hustling on the road. During the recording process, the band pursued activities like rafting, fly-fishing, hiking, and rock-climbing, which all played a role in creating the space & emotion that’s so apparent on the record.
