Comprised of classically trained musicians Jess (vocals) and Alex (production) - both were a part of two different worlds prior to the group's inception: Jess, a solo singer-songwriter and Alex, a white collar consultant. After meeting in the hallways of One World Trade Center, the two struck up a friendly partnership to create music based on shared passions for songwriting and storytelling.
The project started out a hobby but life changed drastically with tragedy striking in Jess' family. This event caused a cataclysmic shift in the duo's writing style resulting in intense focus and purpose.
