Our fourth digital single, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For, has finally been released!
We arranged this song with recording in mind, featuring 4 soloists, the full 2WN ensemble and a full gospel choir. An audience favorite at 2WN shows, this track has become an anthem for the group. 2WN would like to thank Carl Taylor and Liquid 5th for their help with this track.

Christmas Season 2012: By the Numbers:
12 - The number of gigs we will have done.
38 – The number of hours spent singing for said gigs (Oh, we know).
45 – The approx. number of minutes it takes for us to sing through our christmas binder.
About 1,000,000 – Times we have sung through our binder (Hey, we’re music nerds not math geeks).
About 1,000,000,000 – Times we rehearsed measures 20-24 of “The Christmas Song”. (we still don’t get it)
4,200 – The number of pieces of Ghirardelli peppermint bark consumed by us.
42 – Collective weight gain from said bark. Delicious, delectable peppermint bark…(drool).
72 – Number of person-hours spent driving to and fro.
144 – Gallons of gas used while driving X 3.50/gallon =
504 - $$ spent on gas (except when it comes to $, then we’re brilliant mathematicians).
∞ – On a scale from 1-10, Janna’s festiveness.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Y’all!!

Our auditions two weeks ago were very successful; you should have updates on our new members in the coming weeks. Even so, we are still looking for more male voices and a vocal percussionist (beat box-er). Consider rolling auditions for those voice parts officially OPEN! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an audition time.
Last Sunday night’s rehearsal officially kicked off the new season! I was so great to be back together singing with everyone after a long summer break. I for one am excited about this winter semester. We met (then exceeded!) our Kickstarter goal last spring which means we can move forward with our recording plans. We’re also working on some new arrangements for our holiday repertoire, and getting ready for a busy holiday season. Stay tuned!
