We are so grateful to the kind people who have voted for us on the OutVoice GLBT Top Ten Song Chart! This month our song, "You Believe in Love" made it #1 and we couldn't be happier! You can see our new video for it on the homepage. Thanks everyone!
We have just released our official music video for "You Believe In Love" and the reaction has been amazing! It's a cute, quirky send up on Romantic Comedies (Which is literally the only type of movie Tully will watch) with 2 gorgeous gay friends of ours in the lead roles. We are very grateful to have the talents of Dave Deveau and Cameron Mackenzie from the Zee Zee Theatre Company in this video. We had a lot of fun, as you can tell by a few of the outtakes we saved for the end. We hope it makes you smile!
We had an amazing time playing the 10th Anniversary of BOLDFest in Vancouver last weekend! The audience of fabulous women sent us so much love back to that stage that we are still flying!
Our good friend and guitar player, Rona Goodman joined us for the last half of the set and she rocked it. We didn't know until the next day, that lesbian, singer/songwriter legend, Cris Williamson was in the audience. (She played Sunday night) We went in to meet her and she was so kind and hilariously funny. We talked about the music business and had a great time, we didn't want to go!
It is official! On January 27, 2014, we were gratefully inducted in the GLBT Hall of Fame for "building the tribe of LGBTI Artists who are RightOutTV and for the impact RightOutTV has as a resource for the GLBT arts community and the community at large."
We were blown away by this incredible honour from the Stonewall Society and Len Rogers who created the GLBT Hall of Fame. Fellow LGBT artist and friend, Shawn Thomas created our introduction which got me very choked up...it was beautiful and generous and we are so thankful to him.
You can listen to the show and hear about the other inductees as well: GLBT Hall of Fame Show

While on holidays, walking the gorgeous beaches of Tofino, B. C., we received some incredible news! Len Rogers from the Stonewall Society, informed us that we were being inducted into the GLBT Hall of Fame for our creation of RightOutTV. He wrote:
It's very exciting for us when a film or TV music supervisor asks to license our songs. Recently we have had "Come On Out" picked up for the TV series, "Off the Beaten Palate" and "I Just Love Girls" made it into the new film, "Heterosexual Jill."
"Come On Out" has also been picked up for "Eating Out- The Long Weekend" on LOGO. A few weeks ago I also had a lot of fun narrating the documentary, "Working People" for the Knowledge Network. This is my second documentary, the first was "Wings and Dreams" that still pops up on TV on occasion.
We are very excited to announce that we have been nominated in the following categories for the 2012 OUTMUSIC Awards:
Best Folk/Country Song for "Led Me To You"
Best Song on a Soundtrack: "Come On Out"
Best International Song: "Led Me To You"
Biello-Martin Love Song: "My Perfect Christmas"
Looks like we'll be heading to Las Vegas for the awards weekend Dec 14th, at Planet Hollywood and we'll keep you posted!
