We (Nikki Lunden's Natural Habits) had our first photo shoot with Andrea Scott, man is she super pro! She had a concept planned for us that included a cool ass rusty old tractor, a pontoon ride and a gigantic rock at Lake Macbride near Solon. She really put us all at ease and made it feel much more like a hangout than a photo shoot. We had a great time and can't wait to do a studio shoot with her! Thanks Andrea, you're the shizzz!! (There is some buzzing about a private concert at Dows Street Studio too, pst pst!) @andreascottphotography

Well..... I'd like to introduce our newest bandmate Adam Grosso on keys!! We are super stoked to have Adam - "Dickens" - join up with us. He started with us back in 2000 as bassist for the Trollies and not long after joining Iowa City powerhouse Euforquestra first as bassist and then transitioning to drums. He is a master at his craft and has taken on yet another instrument that we are sure will have smoke flying from the keyboard in no time. We welcome him with open arms as a long time brother and new addition to Natural Habits!

Any keyboard players or violinists looking to play some great music and a very light gig schedule? Must be a serious player and somewhat fast learner. Our music sounds easy but it’s kind of like gymnastics - it looks easy until you try it! We are not a jam band. If you think you might be interested go to www.naturalhabitsband.com and check out our live record from NYE 2018 and reach out to me directly through Messenger if you wanna come give us a try. We do have a Roland FA07 for you keys players to make things easy.
