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. FLA's new release, Silver & Gold, finds the duo exploring new territory as a distance band, writing and recording from their respective homes in Philadelphia and Chicago.
