Their debut single, “Hola Luna”, was listed on the top 50 songs chosen by judges/panelists for 2018’s CBC Searchlight Competition.
Goertzen and Hill return to their roots with The Prairie Joggers, the next step in a song writing partnership that has developed through garage bands, coastal beach towns, countless bars and riverside rendezvous. Released November 2019, the duo’s first single, “Moments Happen”, is a raw and energetic first step back into the music scene, a preface for the release of their debut EP.
Recorded by Micah Erenberg at Mustard House Studios, The Prairie Joggers debut EP combines down and out barroom blues with beachy daydreams. Blending easy listening melodies with warm drum tones, raw acoustics and tremolo leads (performed by Erenberg himself), the release acts as an overview for the duos range in mood and style. The self titled EP is now available on all streaming services.
Since their spring release in 2020, the duo has kept busy experimenting with grittier tones, writing new songs and refining their inhouse recording and production. They eagerly await the day they can start booking shows, tours & anything else that gets them out of the house & back on the road.
