This the second part of the Leaves and Branches series, It marks a crossroads in the life of this project at nearly 50 shows under our belt and a series of increasingly better mixtapes or as old people used to call them, albums.
The stories on this record are a perfect encapsulation of the past year. From the streets of New Orleans to the streets of St.Pete. Please let me know if something touches you- Lil Mic.

The new direwood set "leaves and branches volume two" finds the crew like many caught between commitment to express the ever growing amazement of how fucked up things are in the land of the free, and in the soul's voice to honor the hell out of what they rightfully believe. the tracks have a delicate balance of dark sometimes cinematic backdrop, against lovely melody and the harsh truth. it's a perfect blend of bitter and sweet. a ride around the block worth taking..- Bernie Larsen, Cry On Cue.
