Unabashedly devoted to country and bluegrass, Katherine Dougan's influences include Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, Johnny Cash, the Carter family, Hank Williams Sr. and John Prine.

In April 2002 she released a studio demo, "Morningside," which features eight songs written by Dougan and two songs penned by former alt-country duo partner Steven Jones (DouganJones).
Dougan picked up guitar after a divorce, trading her wedding ring for a used guitar at a Kentucky pawnshop. She plays flute and piano, and cites her mother's family's Tennessee mountain music as her earliest influence.
A native of Jonesboro, Arkansas, Jenkins' influences include the Beatles, James Taylor and David Wilcox.
He has played piano since he was old enough to sit upright at his father's baby grand. He has played guitar for 20-plus years and also plays banjo.
