Hailing from the gritty heart of the Industrial Revolution — Worcester, Massachusetts — Ash and Eric find consolation in discovering beauty from the challenges of being artists living in one of the most stubbornly independent cities in the north east. Their musings reflect the hope and pain we all experience in life. Sung in voices as vulnerable and honest as their lyrics, their songs feel like a sincere welcome, a shoulder to lean on, and a hand to hold at the end of a long day. In addition to top tier writing that No Depression says will have you “…coming away from many of these [songs] cleansed,” their warm harmonies, swirling acoustic guitars, and easy stage presence have earned them a dedicated following in the North East folk/singer-songwriter scene. Their highly-anticipated third LP was recorded, mixed and produced entirely by Eric at a boarding school in Western Massachusetts; and will be released in early 2022 alongside an accompanying short film.
