Humming House Friends and Family,
We are putting together a music video for our new song "Companion" and we want you to be in it!
We'd love to include our friends and fans' home videos and special life moments in this music video. Please send us video clips of you and your significant other living life together, from the most mundane to the most momentous of moments. These videos can be pre-existing clips or feel free to film new ones specifically for the project. Emphasis on FUN!
Examples of clip ideas we'd love include of you and your companion:
Existing memorable moments: birthdays, weddings, proposals, anniversaries, first dates, and vacations.
Enjoying life together: Washing the dog... or cat.... or peacock...going on a walk, cooking dinner, dancing in the kitchen, home projects, hiking, biking, parties, going out on the town, road trips, snow angels, and quirky fun times.
1. We'd like video clips to be filmed with a smart phone. Landscape orientation is HIGHLY encouraged.
2. Full color clips are preferred.
3. We'll only be able to include a few seconds of each video. If possible, please trim the clip down and let us know which portion of the clip you'd like to include.
4. No nudity please!

Humming House Friends and Family,
We've partnered with Applauze to start offering exclusive, VIP ticketing perks at select venues this fall. In some markets, this will include a new, exclusive screen print. In others, VIPs will get a full artist meet-and-great, early venue access, an intimate acoustic performance from the band, and other exclusive merchandise!
You can buy upgrades, when available, from the tour widget here (just to the right of this text!) or via Applauze.
A couple of years ago, we worked on a collaborative cover track with Jill Andrews and Sam Bush. The three of us were working with the same booking agent at the time, and decided to work up his favorite song -- Maybe I'm Amazed, by Sir Paul McCartney himself -- as a wedding gift to him.
Today, we've decided to release that track to the public! Read (and hear) all about it in this brilliant write-up in the Huffington Post.
In case you missed it in the banner at the top, check out our new video and our illustrious, non-professional-acting doggos here.
We're hitting the road this spring heading through the midwest up to the northeast. Tickets are on sale now on the right hand side of the website! We'll be adding more dates soon so keep checking back. See you on the road!
