Imagine a child of the 80s/90s underground scene falling in with a 70s prog, classically-trained cellist. What do you get? A refreshing and often unexpected sound! The New Orleans-based acoustic duo, The Two’s, are hitting the road this summer with their new release, "Push On."
With vocal, guitar, cello and footdrums, The Two's have a big sound and an intimate vibe!
The Two’s new EP release, "Push On" showcases the duo’s musical styles covering rock, roots, bluegrass, and classical. The writing and arrangements intentionally work the interplay between the vocal and the cello wrapped in a rhythmic foundation of guitar and percussion.
The Two’s have opened for such acts as rock legend Heart, international pop star Zucchero, Dave Matthew’s side man Tim Reynolds, and have placed music on the Emmy award-winning show Nip/Tuck.
