("Indian Island")

Customer Communications ("Switch It Up")

Orcas Power & Light Cooperative uses our custom song to promote its "Switch It Up" on-bill financing program for efficiency and renewable energy, and as on-hold music.


Wedding/Love/Friendship ("Adventuring")

Holly and Michael love hiking, rafting and mountain-climbing. "Adventuring" celebrates a wonderful new adventure: their life together as husband and wife.

On first hearing the song:
  –"Home run on the first try!" (Michael S.)
  –"A really good balance of the personal and     things everyone can understand." (Holly S.)
After the wedding:
  –"You two are fantastic and all of our dreams were met and then some. We had so many compliments on the song and your playing. Thank you both again for helping to make our day so special."  (Holly & Michael, married August 12, 2023)
