Purr began in 2017 as the second project from New York City born, raised and forever-based songwriting partners Eliza Barry Callahan and Jack Staffen. Just before graduating from college—where Callahan studied visual art and writing and Staffen, politics—the duo who had previously captured attention releasing deft, stripped down, warm-toned pysch-pop under their names, Jack and Eliza, shifted to what naturally felt like their next musical gear. If Jack and Eliza highlighted the songwriting prowess of a promising young duo, then Purr lets Callahan’s and Staffen's work bloom in the fertile ground of a fully realized soundscape. Purr builds upon an ageless, classic sound that at once looks at the past while leaning into their own, individual future.

The band performs as a five piece with Sam Glick on bass, Max Freedberg on drums and Maurice Marion on keys.
