Engineered and mixed by Ivan Rosenberg in Portland, OR. Mastered by David Glasser at Airshow Mastering in Boulder, CO.

Coming from a thousand miles and a border apart, Pharis and Jason Romero met in 2007 at an old-time fiddle jam. Both had been playing music for decades – Pharis her whole life – and both were drawn to early country, blues and fiddle-banjo music. In 2010 they moved their home and the J. Romero Banjo Company north to Pharis' hometown, the small interior B.C. town of Horsefly; in this wilderness hamlet they build their finely crafted and carefully appointed banjos. They play guitars and clawhammer and fingerstyle banjo to the songs and tunes, new and old, they adore; singing dreamy old time country and lovingly hard-cut vocals on traditional and original songs.

Writing songs about ageless characters, hard living, loss and love, Pharis’ songs have been played on radios around the world. She was called a “historical treasure” by the BC Folklore Society for her work as a co-founder of the western Canadian outfit Outlaw Social, an award-winning and innovative roots-folk band. Jason was a fixture on the Arcata, CA bluegrass and old-time scene, and is one badass old time banjo player. Jason and Pharis played with the Haints Old Time Stringband, with fiddler Erynn Marshall and mandolinist/guitarist/songwriter Carl Jones. "They play and sing superbly" (fRoots), and Shout Monah was named one of the best banjo releases of 2009 (Banjo Newsletter). In 2010 Jason and Pharis went on to release their concept recording, Back Up and Push. This instrumental album of fiddle tunes by nineteen celebrated west coast old time fiddlers with guitar and banjo back-up earned them the accolade "old-time duo of Canada" (Penguin Eggs).

Aside from building and performing, they also spend much of their year teaching at music camps and workshops.
