We’re Jess & Robb, a girl, a guy, & acoustic guitars. We’ve been “dueting” in music and as a couple for roughly two years. 2016/ 2017 has been wild! We celebrated the release of our self-titled debut EP in July at Café Koi. It was awesome to have the songs we’ve written brought to life and shared with the world. Since our EP release, we’ve had the opportunity to travel to Nashville for the CD Baby DIY musician conference and play on the infamous Bluebird Café stage. We’re excited to continue to play around Calgary and meet audiences and musicians that call this city home.
A little about us; Robb started his musical journey playing bass and fronting raucous punk bands in his formative years. He’s mellowed out since then and prefers picking on his acoustic (but still makes time for a good mosh pit). As a competitive swimmer Jess kept stride with some of the best young athletes across Canada. She found her voice as a musician in her late teens and it wasn’t long before she hung up her suit and made the transition to full-fledged songwriter and performer. That doesn’t mean she’s given up fitness though. She still cruises down the lanes in her spare time and can out-plank anyone.
Even though we grew up six years apart with different musical inspirations, we both agree our music reflects the pop sensibilities of Taylor Swift, nonchalance of The Ramones, and the wit and heartbreak of Amy Winehouse. We can’t wait to connect and share our music and experiences with you!
