The band came together in their current lineup in 1994. Based out of Charleston, SC they toured regionally, nationally and internationally releasing 4 studio albums (The Licorice Tea Demos - 1995, Magazine - 1998, Vertigo - 2001, Between the Dim & the Dark - 2004), 2 EPs (Buzz - 1997, Between the Glow & the Light - 2005) 1 compilation of early material (The Early Years, Volume 1 - 2001) and a live double-album of their final performances (Live at the Dock Street Theatre - 2006). Known for their eclectic mix of musical influences from ethereal chamber pop to guitar driven alt-rock along with high-energy live shows, they built a grass-roots following of devoted fans across the country. After over a decade of touring and recording they announced an indefinite hiatus in 2005. Since then the members have focused their energy on pursuing new and exciting projects:
Jay released two solo records (Driving Blind - 2007, Silver Tomb for the Kingfisher - 2012) and founded his own studio, Hello Telescope, where he has produced records for artists such as Heather Nova and William Fitzsimmons. Jay has also collaborated with the Colorado Symphony orchestrating for artists like Ingrid Michaelson, Amos Lee and Ariel Pink for their Red Rocks concert series.
Ward moved to New York City and has performed with various artists (Sara Bareilles, Alicia Witt, Vienna Teng, Brandi Carlisle among others).
