Welcome to EEE. The story of two musicians from the city of Brotherly Love, who have decided to turn their personal conversations about life, strife, happiness, and all that goes with it, into a journey of sound. One on piano. One on guitar. Emotions, calm and tranquil, an unforeseen moment turns into what can be described as a growling pivot to a clearly different musical point of view. It’s a powerful moment when the listener’s energy AND the duo on stage experience a collective artistic conversation.
They both have that homegrown Philly feels for music. Be it Jazz, gritty Funk, or “Space is the Place”, all of it was part of their musical childhood which they both developed into unique, separate musical personalities and careers. There’s also a delicately beautiful side to this duo that is just pure and simply put, pretty. Their soon-to-be-released recording has a dream-like quality…colors put to music. Yes, bring back the “Pretty.” I’m just saying…
