Album Notes
The Burden of man is the struggle to keep love alive in this loveless modern day free world. The original concept of the band was to write a few dark acoustic love songs from personal experience, as therapy to mend a half broken heart. However, over time it has become a band that flirts with various rock genres and confronts painful relationship issues with a mischievous grin.

Carlos Velazquez and Shannon Young have a long history together that has included being former lovers and future enemies. They provide the male and female vocals that are easy to listen to, and represent a dialogue between the sexes. After years of playing in bands together, most notably Falling out of Love (2001-2003), their on stage dynamic includes a vulnerable, contentious, and loving banter that is one of a kind.
