Born and raised in the working-class neighborhood of Nordeast, Minneapolis, brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkhum found themselves drawn to classic folk and country music, honing their songwriting skills with weekly gigs at former country 1940s honkytonk (and now music club) The Turf Club in St. Paul, MN.
With the kind of blood harmonies that make your scalp tingle, the brothers made the genre their own and started working originals into their weekly sets of classics; people couldn't tell the difference. A chance gig opening for JD McPherson brought him on board as a fan - he is the producer behind You're Dreaming. Though they came from a musical family, they didn't naturally inherit their deep understanding of early American music. By tracing their heroes' footsteps back to the roots, they came into their style in a very genuine way. By absorbing these musical discoveries, a natural alchemy took place and what transpired is the tasteful rejuvenation and transformation of a retro sound by a modern duo.
