The Dwells were born on the fourth of July. Paige Califano and Matthew Bean were enjoying the night on a hot, crowded Boston rooftop, but soon found themselves one floor below with some old notebooks and a guitar. Their voices blended minutes into hours, and as morning glazed the window, they both left hearing music come to life like they had never heard before. As they dove into new ideas, they slowly crafted their sound and what emerged was a neo-Americana folk duet that gave a nod to earlier genre-benders like Gram Parsons and Ryan Adams.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Adrianne Lenker is an authentic and passionate singer, songwriter, and performer. Her debut CD, Stages of the Sun, produced by Steve Hodge (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Sting), was released on LucidTunes when Lenker was only 14. The title cut was a 2005 Independent Music Awards top 5 finalist in the Singer/Songwriter category. Lenker's "My Bliss" was a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition. Four tracks from the album were featured on MTV's The Hills in 2007 and 2008.
This folk/alt/indie/rock duo self describes as "Simon and Garfunkel meets Tim Burton meets your mother." Erin and Chris met and began a journey that spanned broken strings and broken relationships and first formed a solid friendship, and then a brilliant musical duo. Like the cold nights of October, Herego is the wool sweater you pull on before walking amongst the reddened, dropping leaves; intense, yet caressing, commanding and promising.
