Jarvis is a classically-trained cellist from Massachusetts. Reynolds hails from Wisconsin. They penned a song together that’s on a Grammy-nominated album for Little Big Town. They draw inspiration from elusive emotions we all feel, but often struggle to articulate. Their self-titled debut EP was recently released.
