This morning, my sister Gail down in Georgia e-mailed us. She wanted us to check out Pomplamoose. No, Gail was not trying to get us to include more citrus in our diet and inadvertently misspelling grapefruit in French! Ages ago, she had followed a trail of breadcrumbs from here at Pink Granite, to Ree at Pioneer Woman, to Rechelle at My Sister’s Farmhouse. It was there that today Rechelle posted a YouTube video of an amazingly talented, quirky, clever couple of musicians named Nataly Dawn and Jack Conte - who also happen to be a couple. They’re out in the San Francisco area and they have a sound all their own - even when they are covering other artists. Their primary medium is “VideoSongs” which Jack defines this way:
1. What you see is what you hear (no lip-syncing for instruments or voice).
2. If you hear it, you see it at some point (no hidden sounds).

Here’s where to find them:
The Pomplamoose YouTube Channel
The Pomplamoose homepage
Pomplamoose on MySpace
Pomplamoose on Twitter

Here’s just a little taste to whet your appetite:

Thank you Gail!

And I thought you were referring to a grapefruit infused schnapps...

Hi Sue -
When Chuck read your comment he got a little gleam in his eye! May have to keep our eyes open at the liquor store!

Hi Gail -
Her voice is so sweet and true and they seem to thoroughly enjoy themselves - a great combination!
Thanks again!
- Lee

Tell Chuck it's gooooood!! A little sweeter then a straight schnapps, but I guess that's what makes it so popular over here. I'd gladly send him some, but not so sure it would survive the flight...
