Tell us about your music:

Our most recent album has focused on endangered or threatened animal species of North America. We have combined a wide range of musical styles to highlight each of these animals and provide an enjoyable background while listeners learn about what makes each of these creatures so special!

About your song (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.):

“Bison” originally started out as a spaghetti western country song, but we felt that it took away from the sincere message we were trying to convey about how majestic these creatures are. Our drummer wrote a really amazing part for the song towards the end and it mimics the effect of a bison stampede barreling through the Great Plains!

What you hope children & families will get from this song: We hope listeners will take some time to reflect on the historical significance of bison and also get inspired to learn about ways they can help preserve their legacy through conservation. Families can learn more about bison at www.nwf.org and even find ways to help other species in need!
