“Dreams come true. Without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.”
– John Updike

*************************************************************************************

Welcome! My name is Gaetana. When I was a little girl, I dreamt of being a writer and a poet. One day, after my parents got divorced, something inside me told me to investigate my mom's dusty attic. I came across my dad's old guitar with only three strings. I played for 5 hours until I could get anything that resembled a song out of those strings. When I sang I felt the pain go away and I heard my poetry come alive. 

                                         

From that day forward, music was my saving grace. With my friends encouragement, I sheepishly went out and performed my songs on stage. The musical journey lead me to my first show in the big city. Boston is where I met my rock and roll soulmate- James Grey.

James also dreamed of becoming a performing artist. He believed in my songs and performance. I believed in his compositions, art and drumming. We formed War Twins in 2012 and performed in Boston with incredible musicians.

After 1 year, we took a leap of faith. We made a Kickstarter Campaign and our community backed us up! We rose $3000 and bought our first tour van. A bed was built in the back of that 98' Plymouth Voyager Mini Van and we never looked back.

THE ALBUM

Here we are, 5 years later. We have toured the US for 4 years, performed at festivals all over the country, and lived joyfully throughout the challenges of being DIY performing artists.

After getting married this year, we decided to take another leap of faith. James reached out to one of his heroes, 3 time Grammy Award Winning Producer, Sylvia Massey- who produced bands like TOOL, System of a Down, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and Prince. 

She heard our music and wants to record our next record. We are so excited to bring you these songs.

The One and Only: Sylvia Massy

Us and Sylvia!

THE SONGS:

This new record encompasses a wide range of tones and tales. We wrote these songs in the passenger seat, hotel rooms, and stolen moments alone.  An experimental part of this record is all the poetry and stories that will be included between each song. We have a vision of tapestry and sound.

This message is for you!

In each step we have taken we have experienced doubt and hope. When there was fear, your support kept us going. You told us not to give up, to keep running in the directions of our dreams, and that someday we would be where we wanted to be.

You helped us believe. As a result of all this travel and work, we now know that you can be true to yourself; empowered and authentic. You can give all that you've got and make something beautiful.

We want all the movers, shakers and magic makers. All the dreamers and the lovers! 
Be a part of this journey with us. 
Every dollar you donate is the fuel of our bands future. 
You are a part of the adventure and the places we'll go. You are a part of every piece of this artistic vision!

5 years ago we asked you to help us buy our first tour van. Now we are asking you to help us make the best record yet and reach for the stars.
