The album is a collection of songs filled with funky grooves, sultry vocals, and empowering lyrics that capture the true meaning of being in the now. The Thornes have performed throughout the state, playing with popular reggae bands HIRIE, Sol Seed, and TreeHouse. They’ve shut down the streets for Music on Main, jammed out the Brew Fest in Big Sky, and have performed at various music festivals including Butte’s Original Festival, Silver Cloud Campout, Harvest Fusion, Groovin’ On, and SLAM.
