Jacob and Chelsea met in Chelsea's hometown of Anchorage, Alaska when Chelsea was 16. Drawing inspiration from pop duos Karmin and Lucius, they started playing cover songs at open mics together whenever they could.
Jacob spent the next 2 years encouraging Chelsea to pursue her passion for music, which she did by attending a music and songwriting program in Toowoomba, Australia after graduating high school. After Chelsea completed the program, the duo focused their songwriting efforts and started playing original music together. Jacob proposed to Chelsea in October 2015 at their first official show. The music they played that night became the inspiration and the track list for their eponymously-named Engagement Party EP.
