Weather the Storm is the third release from the husband and wife duo of Steve and Colleen Murphy. This one, their best so far, sees some big changes, in the addition of cellist Suzanne Morrison, which nicely expands their sound heading the band into the chamber pop category. The album saw the band weathering a few storms themselves, recorded in a draughty Chatham schoolhouse in March of this year, produced and engineered by Ben Srokosz.

A comedy about a few days in the life of a successful and self-obsessed matinee idol.
