Austin, Tacoma, Seattle and More to Come!

These Fine Moments, “Break It, Bought It.” On their fifth release, Robert Watts and Hilary Kaufmann again team up with producer Mark Hallman (Carole King, Ani DiFranco) for 10 tracks of immediately appealing pop music. Watts and Kaufmann are one of the better harmony vocal duos in town, and they benefit from the contributions of a few ace local players, including guitarists Andre Moran and Stephen Doster. All songs are their own save for “She Goes Out,” a standout Hallman composition.

CD Release Date Sept. 10th!

We will be celebrating at One-2-One Bar in Austin on Sunday, September 10th at  6:30, hope to see you there! Putting the final touches on the recording next week, and working on videos for at least 2 of the songs.  Production team Mark Hallman and Andre Moran have been amazing to work with, and Mark even contributed one of his compositions for us to use.  Stephen Doster lent his playing skills to a song, as did Tyler Mabry and B. Sterling Archer.  Our “regulars” (Aaron Parks – drums, Mike Rieman – bass and David Breaux – keys) played on most of the songs and will be with us at One-2-One.

In support of the record, we are headed back to the Seattle area in late September, followed by a Gulf Coast tour to Florida and back in October.  Also keep an eye out for some Robert and Hilary duo shows this summer.

Sad to hear about George Reiff’s passing, what a sweet guy.  George played on our Doster produced EP a few years ago, check out the bass lines on Salt of the Earth, which George truly was.

New Album Coming Soon!

generic posterWe’ve been busy with pre-production over the holidays and are ready to take over Congress House to cut some tracks next week! Haven’t decided on full length or EP yet . . . Mark Hallman will be at the helm with captain Andre’ Moran at the wheel, and Aaron Parks, David Breaux and Mike Rieman manning the oars.  Look for a guest appearance by Stephen Doster as well, who was recently inducted into the Texas Music Hall of Fame.

Also, look for our Northwest Tour Dates later this spring. Putting together a run to Seattle and back so if you have any venue suggestions or house concert hosts send them our way.

Peace and love,

Robert & Hilary
