Portland, OR / Des Moines, IA
In June of 2011, two Winona musicians, one living in Des Moines, IA, the other in Portland, OR, did not let distance stop their musical collaboration. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, the two noble souls could send song ideas, lyrics, and various audiophonic collections via the tubes and develop said collections into fully recorded, reverby folk/pop tunes. Armed with old versions of Garageband and sub-par audio equipment, "The Smallest News" has been whirlwind affair of musical joy. The two musical warriors now pass this experiment into your uncynical hands in the hopes that you will share in their joy. Blessings, and may this year produce the biggest news! (Or something less corny).
