The website is awesome!

This website was designed by Kyrie Bouressa, 'Roots bassist and code monkey. She was raised by a number of computer dorks, nerds, and assorted IT ninja, and is continuing the tradition by applying her mastery of the Nerd Force to small projects like this website. 

However, life is about learning and sometimes not everything works out how we expect it to- so if you notice something on the site or would like to recommend a feature, contact Kyrie through the 'Contact Us' tab and write 'Website Recommendations for Kyrie' in the subject line, and she will follow up with you as soon as possible. 

If you just plain like the website and want to send a virtual high-five, that is also welcome!

On the site you'll notice a number of images that have nothing to do with the band members or indeed what you would think of upon someone saying, 'roots ensemble', i.e. the images of dogs and meerkats throughout the website and on the main page. 

Simply, this is due to the fact that stock photos are alarmingly expensive, and Kyrie being a serial hobbyist is also a photographer- the pictures on the site are pictures of her three dogs and two cats that are currently living in Austin with her parents. We are working on collecting enough pictures of high enough quality of the band to gradually phase out the dog pictures. 

If you'd like to see more of her pictures, go to www.flickr.com/photos/kyrieb to check them out!
