Their original music is hard to categorize I would say indi, modern folk,with a twist. They are known for their powerful lyrics and wicked harmonies. They play covers all over the map – from The Beatles to the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s, to Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros, Radiohead, Muse, Andrew Bird…you get the idea. They have a whole set of ROCK songs that they have arranged on CELLO and FIDDLE that people go nuts over. There is a video on the link called Hysteria – that is a good example. They are easy to fall in love with…
Katie Larson and Savannah Buist have played music together as a duo for almost two years. They are 16 and 17 years old and were recruited over the summer to join the Singer Songwriter program at Interlochen Arts Academy as juniors. They are currently attending on full scholarship and representing the school at over 30 venues this year.
They have played over 100 venues in 2012 including several Festivals. They played Traverse City Film Festival and their songs were featured on the Film Festival compilation CD and jump drive. They also played Earthworks Harvest Festival, Dirtfest, Wheatland, and Blissfest. They were sponsored/scholarshipped by Blissfest this year to attend Lambs Retreat in Harbor Springs. They are regular openers for The National Writers Series at the TC Opera House and IAA performances at Corson Auditorium.
Katie and Savannah play 7 instruments each including guitar, violin, viola, cello, bass, glochenspiel, ukulele piano, and kazoo (they tell me it is an instrument) They write, play, and sing our own material and have a CD out called “Tangled Red and Blue”. They wrote and recorded thirteen songs in the first three months they were together.
