Summer Photo Contest Winners

This summer (May-September), we asked you wonderful fans to submit pictures or videos of us via email, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube for a chance to win some sweet, sweet free stuff.Welp, we finally finished compiling all the submissions and voting and here are the results! Thank you to everyone who took up space on their phones to capture us! We appreciated every one, but unfortunately, we could only choose 3 winners. (Let's keep it going. Just because the official contest is over, doesn't mean we aren't still in the giveaway mood ::winky wink::)

First Place First place goes to Sukumar Balachandran for this beautiful picture of Desiree from the Philadelphia Folk Festival on August 15. You get an autographed copy of Red Summer Spirit, a t-shirt, and a copy of our Black Horse Motel EP !

Second Place Second place goes to Anna Marie Frattarola for this perfectly moody shot of us at Burlap and Bean on July 12. You get an autographed copy of Red Summer Spirit and a t-shirt!

Honorable Mention Choosing only three photos was tough. We received so many great shots that we feel like we need to mention two more.

This one makes me laugh every time. Taken at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Ryann signs what we are assuming is her first leg.

And this capture of the essence of handsomeness from our North Star Bar show on June 15.

I haven't been to North Star in a minute but tonight I got to see @blackhorsemotel kill it!
