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 a bold 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 full-length, 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. FLA's latest release, "Maria," is a tantalizingly brief single track and hold-me-over for fans awaiting their next full-length (expected in 2019).
