It’s been about music from the get go. Austin and I crossed paths in 2013 when he spotted me onstage at the Cat’s Cradle while opening for Mandolin Orange.
He didn’t know much about old-time music and I didn’t know much about him, but we figured it out. Music is the reason we met. It’s our past time and our gift we give to others.
Together we’ve played smokey bars, summer festivals, busked on the streets of Nashville til our voices wore out, put a tune to the love at our best friends’ wedding, and led churches in old-time hymns way past it was time for Sunday lunch.
This past summer, we decided to leave our corporate careers to take Chatham Rabbits full-time. We knew we would regret it if we never gave our music a shot.
We tour full-time in our van with our hound dog Ruby and were so thankful for the life were living. Its not always easy, but so far its been worth it.
