American roots music with lots of harmonies, fiddle, harmonica, and good-time down-home vibe. From bluegrass to blues, with three strong songwriting voices, and a few carefully selected covers.
Gemini Junction, based in coastal San Diego County, finally coalesced around this album in 2016, after playing in different configurations and under different names for eight years. We think we’ve finally got it right! Featuring:

JT Moring. Songwriter, vocalist, maintaining the rhythm on guitar, banjo, bass, even some jug and autoharp on this album.

Annie Rettic. Songwriter, classically trained vocalist, playing a unique five-string viola (and kazoo when needed).

Richie Strell. Songwriter, vocalist, award winning harmonicat (harmonicist?) and spoon player – both metal and wooden! And kazoo, when one is just not enough.

With some help here from our friends:
Mike Bradley, slide guitar and bass.
Jimmy Brennecke, cajon.
Barry Brown, piano and bass.
Ian McCartor, whistling like nobody’s business.

Welcome Travis Oliver!

With Annie taking care of business back East this summer, we're honored to have Travis Oliver bringing us back up to quartet-strength. Travis has fiery flatpicking chops, heaps of Appalachian soul, and a bunch of fun new songs for us to play. The music is a great fit with Rocky's bass and Richie's harp, and allows JT to shift over full time to banjo and mandolin.

Check out what Travis has to say in the San Diego Troubadour magazine.

And here's little bit of Hank Williams:
