Their forthcoming EP features five tracks:
Richly textured and hypnotic, Silver Moon shimmers with lines like “As twilight fades, we lie waiting in the night; bathed in love and now bathed in shining light…”
Two of the tracks, Shine on and Climbing, are built around rhythmic guitar grooves, bending into the realm of pop.
Hemlock and Citrine evoke a sense of otherworld-ness: “There is no home – just here ever after. No ever after, no tears only laughter, and no fear, just Hemlock at the top of this tower, with a big clock counting off the top of each hour. I am the queen of this chessboard but the bishops are serpents…”
“Citrine wakes the sunrise – dance of the morning light, chasing fireflies into the sky. Sapphire rules the darkness from this moonlit stage, throwing kisses, dropping wishes into space, dark and distant…”

Featuring songwriters, vocalists, and guitarists Kathleen and Billy Jones, with Mark Foerster on bass, Martin Poole on drums, and James Woodward on lead guitar, the Innocence recorded and performed throughout northern Colorado.
Joseph Hutchinson wrote this about the band in Scene Magazine: “Walking into the Inlet Bay, I was stopped dead by a five member band headed by a slim blonde thumping a bright red, 3 foot conga. For a second I thought I’d walked into a San Francisco coffee house from 1966. It turned out to be the debut of a the new local band, the Innocence, and I predict all fans of the Colorado Sound will be as happy with their earth-loving, almost Donovan-esque attitude as I was.”
