We are so glad you are here.

Across the Borderline is a musical partnership joining Austin songwriter BettySoo with Vancouver Island's Dobro master Doug Cox. More Lies releases in April 2012 with Continental Records in Europe and will be available in late spring in North America. It was truly recorded across borderlines: with Steve Dawson in Vancouver, on Vancouver Island by Doug Cox, and with Mark Hallman in Austin, Texas. As with Lie To Me, the duo's first album (released in late 2011, which was recorded at legendary Canadian folk icon David Essig's studio), More Lies was mixed and mastered by Austin's Mark Hallman. Both albums have already enjoyed success both with critics and fans. The duo is touring in Europe and North America throughout 2012.
