Music is what brought Lora Nigro and Kevin Rutkowski together and is a central expression of their ongoing conversation and creative lifestyle.
Upon meeting at a local poetry reading, Kevin's haunting acoustic phrasing struck a chord and was later named Lora's Dance for an independent film soundtrack. In the mid 90's, they formed the band Sometimes Y (MKE) and recorded two EP’s, "I Am" and "That’s Not What I Heard" produced with Emmy award winning composer, Peter Buffett. Sometimes Y snatched two Wisconsin music (WAMI) awards for best artist. Having cultivated their recording technician and song crafting skills, the married duo turns melodies into film scores in their documentary and commercial projects by 11th Story. United with their original producer and keyboardist, 11th Story's refreshed musical style, crossing electronica and folk pop genres, is being played out in their upcoming release "Psycles" which explores and articulates the experience of consciousness and its evolutionary nature. Available on major streaming services summer 2019.
