Black Sheep Silent Auction

With the release of Black Sheep, Allie Kral​ has been inspired, and used her time on the road to work on some of her hidden talents. She has been knitting small Black Sheep, and made a batch of her famous blackberry jam.

At the Red Rocks Amphitheatre​ show on August 21st, we will be hosting a silent auction to bid on 5 of these one of a kind Black Sheep gift baskets, complete with a sheep, some jam, and a hand written letter from Allie.

All proceeds will benefit The Wild Animal Sanctuary​, a local animal shelter that gives rescued lions, tigers, and other large carnivores a space to roam freely.

Ben talks with No Depression about YMSB EP ’13

Ben recently had a chat with No Depression about YMSB EP ’13 and the process of recording on the road.

“We stumbled on this new model. A way to release studio recordings regularly. It lit that creative fire in all of us. We could find new concepts and continuity.”  – Ben Kaufmann

Grateful Web on New Year’s and YMSB EP ’13

Grateful Web shares the announcement of our New Year’s Run guests, talks about YMSB EP ’13, and goes further to discuss the meaning behind the songs with each of us.

“The EP is something we recorded while on the road,” says Kaufmann. “We seek out studios to work in while touring, and while the juices are flowing and chops are at maximum potential, we take a couple of days to record. There are four singers and four songwriters in the band; what a perfect way for us to release studio material.”
