Drawing from 50s and 60s pop, American Songbook standards, and much more, this happy duo channels and fuses these influences through two voices, a guitar, mandolin, and violin to bring you a mixture of original songs and dusted off covers from the past.

The two consist of Brad Bensko on Vocals and Guitar, and Kathleen Parks (of the 2018 Boston Music Award winning Twisted Pine) on Vocals, Violin, and Mandolin.

While busy with performing and writing – they recently recorded, produced, mixed, and released their first LP of original material in March of 2019.
