We had the absolute pleasure to collaborate with Michele McLaughlin last year on a beautiful song called "When The Rain Falls". In this new video we chat a bit about our process of making the song. One interesting fact was that we never played the song together in person, doing the entire collaboration over email and sound clips exchanged back and forth. Although we did meet up after the song was finished, and had a wonderful time chatting about music and life!
Check it out here and listen to the album at the link in the comments. :)Enjoy!

2018 was a full year for the Gothard Sisters. We released a new album, two new music videos, toured the country doing shows at venues large and small, wrote a lot of new songs and saw a lot of new places.
Thanks for everything. Happy New Year!

This is a song (and set of tunes) we recorded in collaboration with House of Hamill, Mickey Spain, and members of Runa, Emish, Socks in the Frying Pan and Poor Man's Gambit. Please help us out by sharing the video far and wide!
Why record a collaboration? Well, besides just being a lot of fun because all of these people are not only fantastic musicians but wonderful people to work with as well, all of us wanted to do something special for World Charity Day (September 5th)! The purpose of this collaboration is to raise money for the Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a charity which donates high-quality musical instruments to deserving, under-funded music programs, and provides an array of support services to school districts.
All of us in these bands know what the ability to play music has done for us all personally, and we believe that every child, should have the same opportunity if we can help them out.

About two months ago we met Michele McLaughlin in person for the first time! Funnily enough, this was after we’d already collaborated and recorded When the Rain Falls together for the new album.
Listen to the song here:
Michele’s music is absolutely beautiful, and we’ve loved it for years! So this was a dream come true to play music together. ✨🎶
Her albums are on iTunes and Amazon, and you can also follow her on Pandora, and Spotify.
