The band will be showcasing on Wednesday, March 13 at 10:30pm at Raptor House; Friday, March 15 at 6pm at the Hyatt Regency (acoustic); and the Official Showcase on Saturday night, March 16, midnight at the Creekside at Hilton Garden Inn.
Two singles from the Wellspring's upcoming debut full-length album, The Girl Who Cried Sheep, produced by Grammy-nominated, platinum record producer Eric Rosse (Tori Amos, Sara Bareilles, Anna Nalick), will be released at the festival.

In the summer of 2012, they scored all original music for the upcoming feature film comedy Coffee Town, written and directed by Brad Copeland (Arrested Development)

A few months later, Osteen quit her job to devote her attention to the band full time, and the duo have been writing songs together ever since.
