This young songwriting team from Alabama joined together, crafting songs while performing locally in the area working towards there first CD release, "Come Here often". The new CD is original and mostly acoustic, with a magical mix of uplifting tunes, great arrangements, excellent vocals and beautiful harmonies.
Aubrey Andrus (vocals, guitar and xylophone) says, "I don't know what I would do without music. Nothing can make me feel the way music does. I'd be incomplete without it. I always wanted to play and making it a career would be a dream come true." Aubrey quotes diverse influences, being raised on radio pop music like Katy Perry and John Mayer and later gravitating toward LGBT musicians like Missy Higgins and Tegan and Sara.
Jonathan Blakeney (guitar, bass, harmonica. vocals), sometimes titled the "Duke of Juke", was self taught from the beginning. Jonathan joined the Alabama Blues Project after-school program where he blossomed into a talented and skilled blues musician. He is a lover of the blues and puts Little Walter and B. B. King as his biggest influences in music.
Together Aubrey and Jonathan create a dynamic and unique mix. The result is a refreshing and original sound, a unique blend of traditional roots music and contemporary pop.
