CANNONBALL


BIO:
We are all residents of beautiful Whitefish Montana. As a band we have been playing together for over 14 years with various members and various names. Starting with Andy, Daniel and Karen we played throughout Pullman Washington as "Milepost 7". We all moved to Whitefish after college and met Stirling, Parker and Chris and formed "Mexican Breakfast" which later turned into "Homeland Security and the Sweet Sugar Mamas". Recently we hooked up with Emily Clark and the combination of her voice and our material has created "Cannonball". This is original music, the songs are written by Daniel and by his father Peter Minton. The music is a collective creation involving musical input from all the band members. We are proud of what we have and what we are creating and we hope you like it. All of us have day jobs but this is our passion and we love to share it and we love the feedback.
