Coralee & the Townies - Always, Darlin
We met up with the band for an impromptu session in the middle of Triangle Park downtown. Coralee sent the word out about an hour or so before the shoot for any friends and fans to come on out to take part in the session. The result was this fantastic improvised choir of beautiful people. What a great moment. Enjoy!
"Always, Darlin" is available as a free downloadable single from the band's bandcamp page http://coraleeandthetownies.bandcamp.... While you're there, do yourself a favor and purchase their EP too if you haven't already.

Small Batch - House of Cards
We met up with Small Batch at an old historic church in Bourbon County called Hopewell Presbyterian Church. The congregation has been around since the late 1700s. Led by Melissa "Tree" on this one, the band plays their song "House of Cards" about temptation. A fitting song for this old country church setting. Enjoy!
