Music is what brought lyricist, Lora Nigro and guitarist, Kevin Rutkowski together when they serendipitously met at a local poetry reading at the Wisconsin Room in Milwaukee. In the mid 90's, they married and formed the ensemble, Sometimes Y (MKE) recording two LP’s with Emmy award winning composer, Peter Buffett. Lushly orchestrated, their debut CD, "I Am" was mastered by numerous Grammy recipient, Bob Ludwig. Sometimes Y performed throughout the midwest and snatched two WAMI awards (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) for best artist. The self contained duo presently turn melodies into film scores for their documentary projects and YouTube channel videos alongside

releasing a batch of "dreamy synth pop" tunes under the name 11th Story. Reunited with their original producer, Vincent Gaudes, 11th Story's refreshed musical style sets transformative lyrics to organic, percolating electronic sounds and heart expanding frequencies against pulsing rhythmic backdrops. They enjoy sunsets with Pan, their Russian Blue from the 11th floor of their downtown high-rise. New singles now streaming!
