The sun had just bursted over the rolling hills and you're riding your bike, a puppy in your basket and the gentle southwestern wind blowing through your hair.

About Us:
This Kid's Not Supposed to Be in the Family Portrait is comparable to a gem. A multi-faceted gem as a matter of fact (or opinion, depending on perspective). Like a gem ,with its individual cuts gleaming in the arid blaze of an African day awaiting its discovery and eminent presentation to the public, we lie in waiting. Each member bringing awesomely eudeamonic attributes to our band.

Coming to a point, which we plan on doing, our music , although confusing and candid, is recomended for every person's (persons meaning your) palate, young or old,dissadant or velleitant, words mix together like pudding,and so do we? But if on the occasion that we don't...possibly you.
