To say that acoustic guitarist and vocalist Mark Blom and drummer Tyler Dubla play with a lot of energy would be a gross understatement. In other words, they tend to bring it; “it” being clever, fast and catchy folk songs played with a wry sense of humor.

More often than not, the mood calls for drollery, but inside the fun and games lies the focused artistry of a sensitive songwriter.
