Mr. Steve & Miss Katie

New Single!

100% of the proceeds from our new song Super Dominic will go to Dominic and the Liples family, of Doylestown, PA. Seven-year-old Dominic Liples was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgery to remove as much of the mass as possible. He will soon begin radiation and chemotherapy to combat the remaining tumor. Dominic is our friend and neighbor. He's such an awesome kid that we had to write a song about him. Click here!
