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 acoustically on piano, drums, and gongs.
In preparation for their debut LP, Star Owl Sessions, recorded in Seth’s home, represent their first live takes available to the public.
