Two more songs off of our upcoming album are out today! “The Legend of Connie Hawkins” and “Silent Type,” along with “As Old As I,” completes Phase 2, listen here.
Phase 2 is made up of stories of loss, resistance, anger, and injustice. With Phases 1 and 2 being complete, there are now six new songs out — more to come. We’ll be answering some texts this week and would love to connect with y’all on the music: +1 (617) 209-6553
We've been hard at work prepping our new album with production team John Dragonetti + Mike Sawitzke (America, Location 12) and cannot wait for you to hear the whole thing. Over the last few years our band has moved through many phases of change, while as a society + global community we have had to adapt to immeasurable challenges world wide. Personally, we’ve dealt with loss, as well as the joy of birth in our families, and we’ve watched our band stumble and look for new footing as we carry on without a founding member. Meanwhile, the world is enduring a season of political, environmental, and racial upheaval greater than any we’ve seen in our lifetime. Our new album was written and recorded largely from reflecting on and trying to reconcile what we can as we grow forward, and is organized around five phases of change. The first three songs, releasing today as Phase 1, tell stories of the shock, surprise, and chaos that often emerge in the earliest stage of change. Thanks for joining us on this journey.
We just finished this song "Promise Land" with the help of our friend Raye Zaragoza - it’s part of the album that we're finishing up, but we wanted to get it out as soon as we could given the significance of the time. Thanks y’all for coming along with us on the journey. Don’t forget to VOTE!

We are s t o k e d to announce our new I AM STRONG IF YOU ARE STRONG benefit t-shirt! Available now!
We've sung these lyrics with you all in solidarity for the last 20+ years... Thinking of it makes us smile and remember how our friend Elias in Zimbabwe always has an unsinkable optimism in every situation.
We designed these shirts in partnership with our friend Kris at earthisanisland.com. 50% of the proceeds from every t-shirt go to organizations fighting Covi̇d-19 for the sake of our native brothers and sisters, those who are incarcerated, and those who are food insecure... Let’s do this! We are stronger together!
In honor of Human Rights Day, our new song “Year of the Woman” is out now. Watch the music video below, directed, edited, and produced by Genéa Gaudet, or listen here.
This song came out of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings... we were shocked and upset to see the polarization around a woman brave enough to share her story of sexual abuse and that her abuser was ultimately named Supreme Court Justice.
Brett Kavanaugh is just one of many men whose stories of abusing their power and women have come to light recently…
We’re two white men who are in proximity to the problem, and we want to use our platform, as Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley says, to raise the people closest to the pain to power. In our evolution, we’ve been lucky to learn from the amazing women in our lives and in the public sphere. We’re just now grasping how different their reality is.
Our society needs less ego and more of a nurturing spirit - we need more women in positions of power. The time for gender equity is far overdue.
With that in mind, we want to learn more from badass women and girls leading change in their communities. We hope to bring you, our fans, on this journey with us and get your help. We'll be doing interviews every other month in 2020 with Calling All Crows to highlight women and girls leading in their fields.

We hope you enjoy this song and video that share some of what we learned from the powerful women speaking up about rampant abuse. We tried to convey the impact watching this unfold from the sidelines has had on us. We owe a debt to these women who put their own safety and comfort at risk to try and make a better, violence-free world for us all, and we’re excited to follow their lead and contribute to the movement.
