In a note on the website Cavenaugh and Powers write, "See, the thing is, both of us have been blessed with a lot of success individually, but we have barely worked together. Well, we'd like to change that. So, we're making an album together!

"The album will be filled with new and exciting versions of classic songs you already love! And maybe some new ones you don't know you love...yet! Songs recorded originally by artists such as...Etta James...Queen...Joni Mitchell...Frank Sinatra...and many others. We are also planning on recording a duet from the new musical, Dangerous Beauty. Jenny will soon star in the world premiere production of Dangerous Beauty at the Pasadena Playhouse starting February 1, 2011. You'll be the first to hear a tune from this incredible new score!"

The duo, according to Kickstarter, plan to begin recording shortly toward a February 2011 release. Their goal is to raise $10,000. Currently seven backers have pledged a total of $475.
