When they first met and discovered their shared love for singer/songwriter music of the 1960s and 70s, Van Kleef and Rainwater began crafting original music in the same vein, blending sweet harmonies, acoustic guitars, mandolin, harmonica. and sometimes fiddle, bass, and drums.  Rainwater brings his musical background in blues and bluegrass, while Van Kleef offers her stunning, soulful vocals and experience in rock and folk.

"With their delightful harmonies, storytelling lyrics, interactive performance style, and lighthearted humor – these two musicians had the audience roaring with laughter and singing along throughout their live performance."
-Kelly Jones, Portland Radio Project
