Practice Of LateElfys wool hat

So practice has been a lot of fun recently. I mean, it's always fun, but we've been doing some whiskey tasting of late which has added another layer to the general hilarity, although has not made us better musicians. It's definitely been fun, but we are taking a break from the “tasting”.

 At any rate, last practice was particularly fun, perhaps because we had some guests—Rick's wife and niece, and the whiskey was particularly tasty and the feeling in the room particularly festive. And this was our conversation.

Josh: Examining my hat with some intensity, asks, “What is this made of?”

Elfy: “Wool.”

Josh: “Just regular wool from a sheep?”

Elfy: “Yes. And I made it myself.”

Josh: “Have I ever told you that I am pretty good at crocheting?”

Elfy: With great excitement, “No! I did not know that. I only know how to make hats. Could you teach me to make other things?”

Josh: “Definitely.”

Elfy: “Can you teach me how to make a granny square? I am impaired at reading patterns.”

Josh: “I think I can help you figure that out.”

Elfy: “So when we go on tour and have people driving us around in a big bus, Josh will be teaching me to crochet.”

Terrell: “And Rick and I will be sitting in the back playing poker.”

This is us.

Our first CD was finished this past July. Thanks to all the hard work that Rick does behind the scenes our music has been played on a bunch of radio stations, both in the U.S. and around the world. That's been a real thrill. One time my daughter and I got in the car and as soon as I started driving I heard our song “Good Girl” played on 103.3, Asheville FM. That was a big moment for me. Another huge moment was when Josh caught us being played on Local Color on WNCW. Being played around the world is an amazing feeling, but being played at home is special in a whole other way.

About a year ago, Rick and I had the bright idea to try to make good quality recordings of our original songs.  There was no band—just Rick and me and a very chilly basement.  We started on this project not knowing too much about what we were doing, but plugged away, figuring things out and getting better as we went along. 

Rick and Terrell and I had all been in a previous band together, but that band fell apart.  We had asked Terrell to come visit the chilly basement and put down bass tracks on this project that Rick and I were working on.  Terrell, ever obliging did so, and somewhere during the process let us know that he wanted to keep playing with us.
