New Single  'In Vienna' It’s packed into every nook and cranny, but you have to look. Go beyond theusual “here is the history of the hats burgers” (who did not wear hats and didn’t eat burgers) and instead hit the weird and the obscure. So this is the song. A love that came to nothing. A dream that ended before it began. Like most art in fact.

New Single 2020 'Here Comes The World Again' Check out the fun video below. Head to the music page for FREE download. (time limited)

Here's a free track from The Papers- a remix of Live your Dreams, our 2016 hit celebrating Obama's presidency  - let's make 2020 the year we get someone positive about human rights back in the White House .. and everywhere else!

Video Review The Papers "Cowgirl Kiss" feel-good reggae rock For when you need a quick pick-me-up This excellently performed feel-good track has got everything you need to pep yourself up and have you feeling like you again. Kicking off with a sizzling trumpet that will send your worries far far away, it's bright, it's snappy, it's exciting, and it will have you feeling like it's summer all over again, whisk you away to a happy place and never let you leave. SKUNKRADIO LIVE Nov 2018

Never underestimate the power of a cowgirl's kiss.
