CARSON O'KEEFFE and JACK DWYER
Carson O’Keeffe, primarily a folk guitarist, loves to experiment with a wide variety of instruments, discovering the brightest sounds in the strangest places. She draws inspiration from an array of artists as diverse as Van Morrison, Animal Collective, and Arethra Franklin. Her own music, a melding of styles, reflects her unique perspective, punctuated by personal experience and a conscious world vision. Carson’s voice possess an alluring and hypnotic quality, while her lyrics explore raw and intimate realms, both light and dark.
Jack Dwyer has a dynamic, eclectic sound grounded by American folk and blues roots. Inspiration is born of his favorite sounds: Tin Pan Alley classics; Gypsy jazz; Nirvana. His soulful, unique voice, bellowing booming tenor tones and reaching for stark, soprano points, is evocative of a wide range of human emotion, from utter vulnerability, to silly celebration. His lyrics touch on matters both personal and universal.
The two musicians were drawn together by mutual admiration and a shared passion for songwriting and performing. Both believe deeply in the necessity of sharing trust, vulnerability, and humility with their audience through cultivation of safe shared space. Their songs speak with ingenuity of the beauty and suffering inherent in human experience.
