A video of me performing the Seedlings song, “Near the Pine.” by @DanWelk with @Kino323
Haven’t stopped smiling since we heard this remix of our song “Between Us.”
Thanks so much @olsen_twinns!
This is honestly one of the coolest things I’ve ever been a part of.
Des Moines/St. Paul-based Olsen Twinns, an electronic musician, remixed Seedlings’ (my band) single “Between Us.”
Share it with the world!
Every summer needs a love song.
Our latest single “Between Us” is a getting set to release on iTunes, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Written by Danny for his wife, it is a love song that captures the fun and intimate times in their relationship. And it all points to the thing he loves most: following his heart.
It’ll make you dance. It’ll make you sing along. And it’ll make you remember what summer is all about: love and the time of your life.
We’ve been selected as one of the bands for the 80/35 Play In Competition!
From more than 80 bands that submitted, we are one of 8 finalists who get to perform live on Iowa Public Radio. Mark your calendar: We’ll be live at 7:30pm on May 7th.

Want to Hear Something New?
So we decided to submit a couple songs for this competition 80/35, Wellmark and Iowa Public Radio are putting on.
Though our new album isn’t out yet (or titled), we sent the selection panel a couple new songs so we can start getting them out there — because we’re super excited to start playing them and sharing!
About the 2 tracks
1. “Take the Streets”: This is about as anthem-esque as we might ever get as Seedlings. We wrote it after the Arab Spring events occurred. Love, love, love performing this song.
2. “Between Us”: Our goal was to create a groove and the result has had us tapping our toes ever since.
We had an awesome time pulling all these songs together and are even more excited to start sharing them with everyone.
For the next couple weeks, these songs will be live on our Sound Cloud page: http://bit.ly/g2y1O9.
We invite you to listen, share, and let us know what you think.
We want you to grow old with us. As a collection of friends, we find that playing music is one thing we can all come together and share with the world. By listening, we get to go through it all together.
And we’ll be there when you reach out.
Danny, Mallory, Ryan, Connor, Andrew, Kate & Nels
We are excited to play at tonight’s launch of Tikly, a Des Moines-based ticketing platform for venues and artists.
The Des Moines Register featured a blog on it today: Launch Party!
We also have a show on Feb. 23rd at the Vaudeville Mews. Hope to see any and all of you there.
