Their sound is built on undeniable chemistry, lush three-part harmonies and instrumental virtuosity with a funky edge. Their newest album, Stranger to Me, was an immediate critical and fan success when it was released last year, debuting at number five on Billboard's Folk/Americana chart, nine on Billboard's Current Country chart, and 61 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart.
