Gatehouse Saints on Java Blend September 14, 2012

Begun as a side project between singer/songwriter Jen McClung and her husband, poet/musician Jim Coppoc, the Gatehouse Saints cover great lyricists from Leonard Cohen to Trent Reznor to the Dixie Chicks, and use these influences to build their own original music.

"The stripped down sound focuses attention on Jen’s delicate voice and precise guitar-playing. Jim quietly accentuates the rhythm and the low-end without taking the focus away from the vocals and lyrics. This band is both soothing and strong," writes Nate Logsdon of the Ames Tribune.
