Formed in 2015 by Savanna Dickhut and Julian Daniell, the two met during a class while attending Columbia College Chicago.
They were both intrigued by songwriting and decided to start a folk duo. They released their first EP 'The Road Ahead' in 2016, a record built on vocals, rhythm guitar and storytelling. It’s well-done for two young college students, but the evident talent and chemistry between the two pushed Dickhut to want more.
“I whipped [Julian] into shape when we first started,” laughs Dickhut. “We weren’t friends before we started, but I saw so much potential in him and so much potential in us together I was like, ‘Let’s do this. Let’s get in the studio.’ I didn’t know what the hell I was doing, but I knew we needed good professional recordings, and I knew we needed to get a band together to play shows.”
From there, the duo added drummer Tyler Ommen, guitarist Jeff Sullivan and bassist David Thrift, creating the 5-piece rock band that would later grace stages across Chicago performing highlights from their debut album 'Between Us'. The full-length record, which was released in August 2017, explores the ins and outs of relationships, both romantic and not. ~ Jessica Braun Gervais
