“A standard bearer for a new generation of folk artists and harmony duos.” NPR
Evocative lyrics, ethereal harmonies, and intricate musicianship have launched this guitar-playing California duo into the upper echelon of influencers of the modern American folk music tradition. The band’s 2013 debut album pushed Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale into the national spotlight and earned them the first of three Grammy Award nominations. The group’s latest effort finds these two fine artists performing a stripped-down acoustic set, signaling a return to the core of what they are all about musically: the duo.
