American Mars Quotes
Karla and I do have different influences but we always felt that those made the band more interesting to ourselves and to our audience.

Most of the songs are written acoustically and then built up from there. Our guitarist Gary and I just got done doing a series of shows as a duo where we both just played guitar.

It was good to find out if the songs could stand on their own without all the bells and whistles. I think they did.
