Biotic Agents

2019 - Coming Soon

Biotic Agents explores the ecological importance of pollinators, celebrates their mythological stories, and shares our personal experiences with bees, bats, hummingbirds and butterflies. Our goal is to write each poem and compose the music using forms such as pantoums, villanelles, minute poems, and sonnets.


Beautiful Unfamiliar

2019 - Available Now

On Beautiful Unfamiliar, each song tries to capture a key moment from our time living and traveling in Europe.

In this collection, we attempt to honor an experience that felt like a dream and changed us forever.
