Savoca's sixth release, "In The Dirt," took root in a two day session with the legendary T-Bone Wolk in their 100-year-old church nestled deep in the hills of upstate New York.

The Duluth News Tribune called it "cleverly written and embracingly beautiful songs that have a beguiling way of changing and reconfiguring themselves like an aural kaleidoscope."

The two first met on stage and immediately recognized each other as the ideal musical partner. Years of leading their all-original, dance-driven band imbued the duo with the sonic power of a larger group, be it pulsing funk or haunting ballad. They are also independent record producers and have scored several feature films and documentaries.
