Great show at the triple door! 

thanks to the Sugarmakers for freakishly fun set and to the audience  for showing up cheering them on. We'll be playing next at pier 57 for the Americana fest this coming Saturday at pier 57. You can watch us from the giant wheel......!  Danny, rick, faith, eric, and ryan. 

I almost feel like taking a nap in the grass -- record release friday, 8/11 

This is the flipside of the new record -- I called it the little me when we were working on layout.  Can't say enough how excited I am to have the new record coming out in a bit over a week, to have a great release show lined up.  That's the payoff: you get to put the music out there and watch it take off.  but right now, its still down in the mines, waiting to see the light.  And it is summertime out here on the island and people hang out, friends stop by to visit and never leave -- in a good way -- and sometimes you just want to take a nap out in the grass and let a lot of stuff slide right off your mind, but hey, we've still got a few more proofs to approve, a test pressing to listen to, a poster to make, a show to book in Boise.  All good stuff.  I can't wait for you all to hear Lemon chocolate, or the One.  The Game is good too.  the best record we've made.

 

See you soon, Danny and the Makers

     

Upstream! 

Upstream was great!  thanks to all you who came out and saw us play at the Stardbucks stage with Shelby Earl -- so much music, so many bands.  A very cool event, and a great show!

Thank you, Everyone!  

Had a good set with new songs at The Conor Byrne in Ballard, thanks for jeering, sticking out your tongues and showing your appreciation and affection: yes, we'll be back!  Played Fall through, (bottom) Lemon-Chocolate, King of Nothing, and The One of the new record.  Will be playing a few more at Upstream Festival with Shelby Earl at the Starbucks stage May 13th.  Our new record is mixed, and we're finishing Art and credits.  I think you'll all be a little surprised -- I am -- best thing we've done yet!  Be releasing CD next month, then vinyl later in the summer.

News Flash ---- Our cd release show is in the Royal Room, June 3rd, with Carrie Akre opening!

Here are some live pics from Eric Stuhaug -- enjoy!  Danny and Co.

New record! 

iok, enough talk already!  Time to watch the flowers pop up and listen to our new record!  We'll be playing songs off it at the Conor Byrne in Ballard this Saturday night, the 11th. Stereo Embers and Chad Bault will be there too. 
   Push me Pull You is the title of the new record -- I guess that makes Masterwish the old one now. Weird, this record has the best work the Sugarmakers and I have yet done, and I'd be lying if I said anything different. A little grittier a little deeper, some more guitars some handclaps. You know a record that you want to play loud enough to make the junk mail fall off the top of your speakers!
   John Goodmanson did a lot of the recording, Martin Feveyear is mixing and we'll be doing an lp and another Hockeytalkter single in the next couple months. I think it's the best we've done!  Come out Saturday night. Check it out. Love, Danny, Rick, Faith and Eric.
