Seth & Andy started composing original works for the piano & drums in Summer, 2016, and debuted them on a rural Oregon tour in 2017. Living 90 minutes from each other in NE Oregon, they were introduced through the singer-songwriter Bart Budwig, having both played as session musicians on one of his records without, oddly enough, meeting in the process. They bonded over their passion for expressive, visceral post-jazz and a desire to collaborate on a new genre of music within their community. Their high-energy performances involve a medley of contemporary, impressionist compositions & instrumental arrangements of rock and romantic music, performed in an acoustic environment.
