Blending the contemplative winters of the northeast with the solitary beauty of southwestern desert, Sam and Zack DuPont are now co-conspirators in a shared passion that runs deep in their family. Since the start of the band in March of 2013, this VT based indie-folk duo have toured heavily throughout the Northeast, Mid Atlantic, South and Midwest in an independent pursuit to get their songs to as many ears as possible. Their travels have opened doors to festival appearances at SXSW & Grand Point North in addition to performances in support of some of their musical heroes including Bahamas, Blake Mills, Sturgill Simpson, Ben Sollee, Langhorne Slim, Chris Eldridge & Julian Lage and Jerry Douglas to name a few. This past year, they have been working on a new studio album with VT producer, Michael Chorney and a hand picked cast of local musicians. Their sophomore full length and first ever vinyl release, A Riddle For You, was released on June 3rd 2016 and is available on all the digital music hubs.
NOTES FROM THE HOSTESS
I would classify them as neo-indie-folk rock...to be exact.
Since Harmonium Fest I in June of 2014, we have gotten to know these boys, adopting them as our surrogate nephews, which means giving them room and board as often as they need it in their travels. I have seen them bend and grow as artists and people and am proud to witness the birth of their music that now rocks the heck out of any room they're in. -Nani
