The title track of the initial EP “Love 4000”, is a timely anthem to the long distance relationship in the era of technology-enabled romance and more recently, the pandemic travel restrictions. Other songs on the debut EP deal with fresh starts, mindfulness and first sparks.

DEBUT ALBUM (MARCH 4, 2022)

In the 2022 debut LP, "Offering", Cabbage set out to create "soaring-chorus Americana" with a theme of "accepting the new normal". Songs like "Full in the Now", "Hard Work" and "Gravity Boots" were inspired by the shifts in daily life experienced in the global pandemic and stresses placed on the workforce.  The songs on this album are were written to be performed on a big stage celebrating outdoor music or in more intimate settings with an acoustic guitar with warm harmonies.
