Glad I'm not in Michigan...

I talked to Mike today and apparently it's really cold in Ann Arbor, so I'm not regretting my decision to live in North Hollywood. :) Some people say they couldn't deal with the LA traffic, and that they need all four seasons, and blah blah blah. I got in my car today and didn't have to scrape off any snow or let it warm up, and that's plenty good for me. If I want snow I can drive a couple hours to the mountains and have snow, and when I'm done I can drive back to my apartment and change back into a pair of shorts. The weather was beautiful today, and that's worth the extra cost of living to me. Anyway, since Mike thanked me for introducing him to matcha tea, I'll have to thank him for introducing me to QUINOA, the king of the grains. Those of you that know me know I can be a bit of a health nut, and quinoa is amazing! It tastes great, and is a healthier alternative to the other grains such as wheat and rice. It contains complete protein, which means it provides all 8 essential amino acids. You can find it in most healthy grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's. It's also gluten-free, for those of you that have a gluten-intolerance like myself. Keep checking in, new song up soon. Leave comments and let us know what you think about the blog so far. Till next time... -Philly TR

New Blog/More News

Welcome to our new blog. This is where we will be doing all our future updates, where you can be the first to hear all the latest happenings with Taproot - tour dates, videos, and even new music! I've been given approval to release one of our new album tracks which will be up within the coming week. I'm excited to hear everyone's reaction. I received my copy of the mixed and mastered version of "Our Long Road Home" on Tuesday, and I've been listening to it constantly ever since. I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out, can't wait for everyone to hear it. We are going to use this as a real blog, which means you'll also get random thoughts and ramblings from all of us on here about anything and everything - from tv shows and movies we're watching to what we ate for dinner last night. If there's anything you want to hear about or see on here, any ideas, please let us know and we'll try to accommodate. Till next time. -Philly TR
