Acoustic Covers Album

Well...we finally did it...we went into the studio and recorded some of our very favorite covers!!!  You guys have been asking us to do it for a while & guess what??? We DID!!! Wooohoooo!!! We started covering songs on our blog/YouTube channel years ago and have gotten such kind responses...we decided to pick a few of our favorites and put them on an album. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-UPEX2p5Zc

Now, we know what your first question is going to be...WHAT SONGS DID YOU PICK TO COVER?

Well, we aren't spilling that just yet. What you do need to know is that we will be releasing our first SINGLE & MUSIC VIDEO on February 11th. Ahhhhhh.....we are so excited!

So stay tuned and keep being our awesome family of supporters!! You guys are our promotion team. You guys are our publicity. So thank you for sharing our music with your friends, thank you for RTing our tweets...thank you, thank you.

We are so proud of these covers and so proud to call you a part of our team. We couldn't do it without you. Seriously.

We are all in this together.

#fansoversuits (Day #5)

We've always believed that any great stride or success we have in our career will be because of our fans and not because of suits in an office building. YOU have the voice.

YOU are our record label.

YOU are our marketing department.

YOU help us and guide us and make decisions with us.

When we say that we're all in this together...we mean it. We could not and would not be able to do this without you.

So, if you're a j&k fan...make sure we have your email address (if not, just enter it on our homepage) because in these next few months we are going to be calling on the people that know us best to help make future decisions.

Thank you for being a fan and friend.

Thank you for loving us and our music.

YOU rule...literally.

So sweet.

We wanted to take some time to say thank you to everyone who has been filling our fan mail post box with lots of fun letters and gifts. We read every single letter that arrives there (even if it takes us a while to catch up on everything...) We're not sure that we can fully express what it means to hear from you guys...there is something so sacred and special about "snail mail"...that someone takes the time and effort...it really doesn't go unnoticed. Thank you for your encouragement  and belief in what we are doing. We always say that we couldn't do what we do without you guys. So thank you for the letters, postcards, gifts, tweets, comments, "likes", etc...we really do have the BEST FANS EVER.

Here are a couple snap shots from the fun stuff we got recently...

Again, thank you for being so kind and encouraging.

Much love,

So, this started as a tweet and there was no way to widdle down the words enough to say what we needed to say.We were thinking about how FREAKING-UNBELIEVABLY excited we were to be playing our very first international jillandkate shows and it made our heads spin for a second. Some of the people that are coming to the shows on Monday & Tuesday have been fans for six plus years and have never seen us play live. That's insane. We cannot say enough how much your long-distance support has meant to us and we are so happy that we finally get to come to your neck of the woods and play our songs for you guys. Cause see your long-distance love & support has never felt long-distance. You guys stay up late or wake-up early to catch online shows or chats, you tweet us, comment on blogs, you buy our songs on iTunes & Instagram pics of you sporting j&k apparel...so your love has never felt long-distance & for that we cannot thank you enough.

We also want to acknowledge that we know the UK is not the only place we need to get to playing a show. We have seriously been blown away by the fans all over the world that have asked us to play a show in their country or city--heck there are fans right here in our country that have never seen us play live either. And you know what? We are changing that this year. 2013 is our year and we're coming for you.

Please trust us & know that we are working really hard to play a show for each & every one of you. We are making plans, strategizing and scheming to figure out ways to play more live shows. 2013 is the year of jillandkate. Just kidding. We think it's the year of the snake...haha..who knows but the year of jillandkate just has a better ring to it? Haha.

We couldn't have made it this far without you guys. We won't let you down. If you feel so inclined to leave a comment letting us know the city or country you're in & would like us to play please do so :)

Hope each of you feels the thankfulness in our hearts.

We love you guys.

Boredom, Running and Scenic Drives

Boredom at its finest backstage.

Okay...maybe THIS is boredom at its finest backstage.

Boredom also leads to sticking tiny silver hearts on our cheeks. Pretty sure you can only see Lesley's. #picturefail

Y'all have been asking for pics of the birthday girl on her birthday...here ya go!

A little karaoke action in Denver for Jill's bday.

Birthday hats = serious party time.

Gorgeous drive to Seattle!

Seriously unreal.

Still driving to Seattle...

An afternoon in San Francisco!!!

OO-AH run club run across the Golden Gate bridge...AND back. (pic taken by kate while running...notice finger in bottom left hand corner!)

That's kate running...

After a fun day of running and wandering around downtown SF, we had fabulous food at the Crab House...and a delicious MOJITO! Yummy.

Jason was all bibb-ed and ready to go.

We saw the sea lions just chillin' on the pier.

Finished off the night with ice cream....

We just got to celebrate our dear friend & bandmate Einar's birthday...HOORAY!

Driving to Bakersfield we saw these crazy orange flowers...

After the Bakersfield show we met a new friend TeriAnn & she gave us these adorable purses that she MADE HERSELF. Along with a super sweet handwritten note inside. (Jill's purse isn't pictured but it is equally adorable!) We love them & cannot wait to use them.

So there you have it...those are some pics from the last week or so...

Can't believe it is almost April....wowza.

-j&k-

Awww...you guys.

It was recently brought to our attention that there are some YouTube videos out there that people have made for us with pictures/videos, etc :) So we did a little searching on the tubes and found that YES, in fact there are videos that y'all have made & so we thought we'd share them. We should really hire y'all for promotion. So fun looking over the old footage and pictures...time sure does fly when you are having fun. -j&k-
