Where is the group from and how long have you been here?
Savannah, Ga. We've both been here since 2007, but we've been playing/recording music since 2011. Rachael is originally from Florida and Ryan is originally from a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwestern Virginia.
Some of your musical influences?
Ryan: I think for me, it's more so the what. The idea/search of home, living in a city/longing for the country, the seasons, love/life/death ...
Ryan and Rachael: However, some musicians we would have to credit would include Bill Callahan, Jana Hunter, Tony Dekker, Sufjan Stevens, Mazzy Star, Timber Timbre ...
Your sound in three words:
Ambient folk noir. (Folk noir is a description we sort of coined from the very start.)
What are some of your favorite Savannah venues and why?
Graveface Records, because it's quite an intimate setting; always surrounded by records, taxidermy and our favorite Graveface people.
Safe//Sound. We like playing intimate locations and this is that times the max, plus the acoustics are sensational.
What's in the future?
We're recording our debut full-length record which should be out later this year. We like surprises and mystery.
Anything else to add?
We'll be playing the Furious Hooves showcase at the Stopover, which is a label that Ryan founded with Virginia friend TJ Hatcher, also playing at Stopover. We're super excited for this showcase, mainly because we get to play it with so many of our friends. Should be an amazing time. Rachael also just put out a solo record on Furious Hooves under the name Heavy Boots.
