When Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers put their songs and their voices together, there is a delicate and powerful magic that commands the room to attention.
The duo is known as Frances Luke Accord, and they are what NPR's Mountain Stage calls “the definition of lean-in music.” Their soulful branch of indie-folk is orchestrated with spare and sophisticated acoustic threads woven into a lush backdrop for their intimate melodies. Rich, up-close tenor harmonies lend their timeless songwriting an urgency that honors the Simon and Garfunkel comparisons but pushes beyond into the world of Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez, and progressive folk music.
Both raised in South Bend, IN, Gunty and Powers met and began performing together during their time at the University of Notre Dame. Their first release, 'Kandote', was an intercultural collaboration with the Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir in Uganda, a not-for-profit effort which provides ongoing support to the choir to this day. Relocating to Chicago in 2013, the duo honed their songwriting craft while releasing two more self-produced EPs, laying the groundwork for their breakthrough debut LP, 'Fluke'. This immersive, philosophically rich album set them off on their first national tour, which included support dates with Darlingside, Anais Mitchell, and The Ballroom Thieves.
Now a distance band, the duo continue to explore their combined voice from their respective homes in Philadelphia and Chicago. Their sophomore LP is expected early 2020.
