Coming from amazingly diverse backgrounds, native-Puerto Rican Alina Allread and Appalachian-descended Cincinnatian Brandon Wheeler combine their varied influences and experiences into thoughtful, carefully-crafted songs about love & life. Acoustic-based alt-Americana (is that even a qualified genre?) Good, hook-driven tunes, solid rhythms, and witty, insightful, introspective lyrics.

Currently seeking:

-a smooth, creative bassist
