The Neighborly is an Americana Folk-Pop duo. Arissa May and Brock Lawley found themselves real-life neighbors and were surprised to discover a unique blend of their voices.
Brock Lawley’s prolific songwriting provides much of the backbone of the Neighborly’s large catalog of original music. Brock is currently the Director of Worship and Media Arts at Encounter Church of Palmyra.
Arissa moved back to the Central PA area after having lived and worked in Nashville, writing, singing and performing.
In October of 2016, the two performed for a local non-profit’s fundraiser and realized a mutual desire to make music that supported family and community. Brock and Arissa are in loving and committed marriages, raising small children and are heavily involved in their local church, the Neighborly’s music reflects their current stage of life.
The Neighborly was officially formed in June 2017 and the name was an easy pick, reflecting their geographical relationship to one another, their desire to build up their community.
In the vein of pop-folk artists like The Civil Wars, Over the Rhine and JohnnySwim, their bedrock of acoustic guitar overlaid with intricate and playful harmonies, touch on themes such as family, community, love and deep faith. Their mission is to use their music to connect, encourage and serve their local community.
