In early 2011, Laura Kepner-Adney wrote four songs in four days. Over the next year, three people agreed to play them with her. With an expanded, collaborative set that ranges from surf to punk to soft, folky country, the Cordials have developed a broad draw in Tucson's music scene. The release of their debut album, "Not Like Yesterday," is scheduled for late 2012.
The members are Laura Kepner-Adney (Silver Thread Trio), Courtney Robbins (Seashell Radio), Cristina Williams (the Modeens), and Winston Watson (Saint Maybe).

"...delicious sweetness by empowered, take-no-shite ladies." --Zocalo
"Every time I daydream, the Cordials are my soundtrack." --aTomnymous
