THE SEA THE SEA is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop duo-band featuring what Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song “Waiting” sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Mountain Stage host Larry Groce calls them “ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing.” Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, earned features by Apple Music including “Best of the Week” and “A-List Singer/Songwriter.” Recently, Paste Music / Daytrotter described the band as “defined by their infallible vocal harmonies and their unconventional song arrangements. The Sea The Sea is a pop band only in their melodic infectiousness—otherwise they are at their best when subverting conventions.
Lowland Hum is a husband and wife duo making music that is decidedly quiet in the midst of our culture’s present noisiness. The duo’s self-imposed musical restraint provides space for their rich harmonies and skillful arrangements to fill spaces both large and small, and their sound is unmistakably their own. At shows, Lowland Hum employs the use of handmade lyric books, off-the-cuff songs and conversations with their audiences to create a refreshingly communal musical experience. Lowland Hum has taken their hush folk sound across the United States & Europe, sharing stages with the likes of Josh Ritter, Penny & Sparrow, & The Oh Hellos along the way. Their music has garnered praise from outlets like NPR, The Huffington Post, Paste, American Songwriter, Billboard, & No Depression, and has found a home on some of the top playlists by Spotify, Apple Music, & Amazon Music.
