Red wine and long nights yielded the spontaneous songwriting collected in Hot Date’s first album, For Lovers. Eric Carranza and Nora O'Brien created songs that are warm and intimate, but also edgy and playful. Most recordings were captured in their home studio by the duo, along with the talents of friends. The wide array of sounds in this album may be the next vintage standards for speakeasies of the future. Hot Date is based in Saint Paul Minnesota where they practice Yoga, eating breakfast, and being lovers.
