"We wanted to create a very organic, intimate and bold album to best represent our lyrics, music and who we are as artists.  We feel this record does that and more, as the songs are highly accessible with elements of the unexpected,” explains Raveis Kole.  “Americana/Folk is evolving to become a powerful platform for this type of music, and we believe "Electric Blue Dandelion - Nashville Sessions" fits perfectly within this structure while remaining true to our vision of creating art in music"
