We met in Chicago, the spring of 2011. After our first rehearsal, we found ourselves nestled up at a whiskey bar in Wicker Park. We bonded over old soul tunes and became instant best friends. Singing songs side by side night after night for a couple of years led to the kind of intimacy I always dreamed about... we exchanged quiet glances and I grew to love this curly headed man with all of my being. Through our love and songs, we found ourselves in heavy times, our hearts called us to Austin, Texas in the fall of 2013 to tend to family. We left behind what felt like our entire lives but cultivated new found forever friendships and humble beginnings made for great song-writing. We recorded our self-produced EP in 2014 and later a full band EP in 2016. In our few years in Austin we’ve endured our greatest losses and are songs echo the sentiments of survival and hope. Our sound has thumbprints of soul, spiritual and gospel influences, harmonies and hard truths sang with guts and grit. Our greatest influences are our heavenly parents, Tracy Boettcher & Veronica DeChausse, and though one was a singer and one swung a hammer they enforced the importance of humility and humor, integrity, honesty and soul. We sing songs because we have to, we carry on phrases some couldn’t finish and are moved to share with you what really shakes us at our core.
