Sweeping the Portland Phoenix “Best Music Poll” awards each year since forming in 2009, the band has gathered a total of 8 awards from the Phoenix, including “Best Local Band” (2), “Best Live Act” (2), “Best Local Album” (2), “Best Song,” and “Best Roots Act.” Other accolades include first prize at the Oxford Rockin’ Country Showdown in 2011, nominations for “Best Maine Act” in the 2011 New England Music Awards, and appearances in numerous local and national “Best of 2011” lists this past year.
