With the record hitting the streets this week, Pedigo and Taylor have decided to head out on their first extended tour together, going to the Midwest throughout February and then off to South by Southwest in March.
Young's gig managing the AllGood Cafe and Pedigo's day job selling medical supplies will be put on temporary suspension as the pair attempts to connect with a wider audience. But that's OK, Pedigo says: "Since there are only two of us, we don't have to deal with four dudes that all have part-time jobs that they are constantly losing. We put the guitar and banjo in the car, and we're on the road."
"We don't have any extraneous garbage to deal with," Young adds.
Nope. Just each other.
Listening to Pedigo and Taylor calmly discuss how things have come together so quickly for The O's, it's almost like hearing a couple of MBA grads discuss a successful business venture—that is, until the third beer kicks in and both members start to let words fly without much of a filter.
"This band was inseminated on June 2, and we have a baby coming out February 10," Pedigo crows.
"What are the chances that cocktailing could lead to such positive things?" Young asks.
