My 8-yr old son (I know, not your target audience) LOVES your music. Especially "What Shepherds of These Hills". So he has a question: "their songs are so good, but why are they so short?"
Ha! If we can appeal to the 8-yr old demographic, we're doing something right!
Actually, we did make a Shel Silverstein poem into a song last year that your son might like. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll send you the mp3.
Why are our songs so short? That's a good question and one we don't have a good answer for. Honestly, I think we left them a little too short on the Novel Sounds record. We tried to make the songs a bit longer on Death of a Decade. Hopefully, the songs will still warrant repeat listens!
Do you plan on releasing your version of "Black Betty" (perhaps as a b-side?)Ha Ha Tonka responded on 03/25/2011 Next question
I've seen "The Tonk" twice now and was amazed, I tell friends your live show is stellar, a must see. What type of guitars & amps do HHT use? Sounds really unique BTW:Saw the No Res. episode, way cool!Ha Ha Tonka responded on 03/29/2011
