Well it has been awhile since I posted anything. Here is some news. We've been kinda taking it easy as of late, but I have been getting off alone in the studio and recording parts for what is to be our next album release. We finally decided to just man up and put something out. We have recently relocated to Worthville KY. We are working on getting a Recording Studio/ Historic Records office building done. This will serve as a great work space for us to get some things done. We are very excited for things to come. If you would like to see us play we are playing the following shows. BRIGANDS GROVE : AUGUST 11, 12 : Charlestown IN. We will playing 2-3 shows a day. Come on down. -Jake Book

To all our fans: We have decided to take a break for a while and pursue our own music interests. Not that we have broken up we will just not be playing much the rest of the year and are postponing our album "Hunt the Hare" to be recorded at a later date. Thank you all for your support and we will see you down the road... -The Tenants

2011 and going foward in 2012

As I look back on this past year I realize that 2011 was a really busy year for us. St. Patrick's day was the best yet and we traveled as far as New York to play a show. It's been a year of growth and finding our way, a year of ups and downs and a year of new friends and making old friendships stronger.

Jake Moyle has recently rejoined the band after a brief hiatus dating back to June. It's great to be a three piece band again.

In a few weeks we are relocating to Indiana. I will be taking a job and eventually will be working at a Historical Site, Autumn will staying home with our beautiful daughter and making Chocolate. Jake will be moving down in the summer and plans on taking a job as well.

We are still working on the next album with plans to release it around St. Patrick's Day, but we'll see. We also are going to be releasing a live album or 2 this year.

We would like to thank every person out there that calls themselves a Tenant fan. You guys are why we do this. We love all of you and hope that 2012 holds great things for you.

P.S. Look for St. Patrick's Day Tour Dates!!

Playing the Streets of Columbia

We arrived in Columbia Tuesday the 20th and scoped out our first spot to play, in front of a closed bar. The whole feeling of just going out there, playing some tunes to people passing by was a great one. It was just me (Jake) and my friend Matthew Fennewald, a great banjo player from Missouri. After making a few bucks, we headed down the street and warmed up in some of the unique shops in the downtown. Shortly into our day of playing we were met by Shaun, owner of McGinty's Pub there in Columbia. He liked our tunes and booked us for Thursday night! After that we went and grabbed lunch at Little Ceasers (on 5 dollars for a large pizza!). We ate there for the next 2 days at lunch time. Later on Tuesday we were asked to play at a bar called Sideshow that night by Jesse. He was an awesome dude and really helped us out. We are hopefully going back on the 13th Had a decent little crowd who all seemed to enjoy our tunes.

Wednesday 21st

Wednesday was a bit slower. Not to much happening. We were recommended to play down on 9th street and it was good! Lots of folks passing by.

Thursday 22nd

We played through the day but it was significantly colder so we spent much time indoors. We played in a little cookie shop and were given some free cookies! We were also able to play whatever we wanted over the sound system, so we ate our cookies to the beautiful sounds of the Pogues.

At nine we went down to McGinty's Pub and had a great time. Lots of new fans and friends. On the whole it was a really great week and I look forward to doing it again sometime.
