HERE IT IS! Filmed by our friend Robert Brandt on a GoPro camera – This is Tony and Lesleigh Memmel live at the Bluebird Cafe’s Sunday Night Writer’s Night July 6th, 2014.
“I Know We’ll Get There” was written during the VH1 and Republic Records “You Oughta Know” Make a Band Famous competition. After being narrowed down to the Top 8 bands in the New York City rounds, the contestants were challenged to write a new original song about “fame.”
Lesleigh and I had a matter of hours to write together overnight. We were in a room with the 7 other bands, overlooking New York Harbor, and the Statue of Liberty. The challenge really tested us, but we are very proud of the end result.
This song helped carry us all the way to 4th place, and we are especially moved by the HUGE outreach from our fanbase. Thank you for supporting us along the way. This one’s all for you!
