Our names are Lydia McAllister (vocals) and Becky East (guitar) and we started writing music together about two years ago when we first started uploading covers to YouTube. As we began to write our own original songs, we also started to play at venues around our local area. Through the amazing support online, we had the incredible opportunity to support McFly in Easter time, which has spurred us to on play even more shows and to release our first studio EP! (Which will be coming soon… Promise!)

Holley Maher is an artist. In her Nashville home, she surrounds herself with paintbrushes, self-authored and illustrated storybooks and novels, odd collections of instruments, and stacks of notebooks full of sketches, ideas, and songs in the making.

Jenny Owen Youngs, singer/songwriter and natural history enthusiast, returns with her third studio album, AN UNWAVERING BAND OF LIGHT. Produced by longtime collaborator Dan Romer (Ingrid Michaelson, Jukebox the Ghost), the record finds Jenny knee-deep in crunchy rock guitars, whispery string quartets, and a mixed bag of bizarre-o percussion... in other words, precisely where she wants to be.
