Summer Concert Series: me&you
Time & Location
Brother and sister, Connor & Karlee, make up the indie folk duo me&you. The pair grew up in Sacramento, CA spending much of their time in the Sierra Nevada mountains, only to find themselves living in a campervan in the backcountry of New Zealand in late 2016. While traveling abroad, the siblings wrote their latest EP Chasing Trails, set to release in June 2018.
Calling upon the generous support of their fans this past fall season, the siblings successfully launched a me&you Kickstarter Campaign to fund their collaboration with producer Ben Tolliday (Lord Huron) at Whispering Pines Studio in Los Angeles, CA in early 2018. The 5 song EP features an all star cast of musicians including Matt Mayhall (Aimee Mann, drums), Anna Butters (Phoebe Bridgers, bass), Aaron Embry (Willie Nelson, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, keys), and Brett Farkas (Lord Huron) to support the siblings’ inseparable harmony and storytelling.
“We understand this new chapter of music as a reminder to always remember where we come from. It’s important to us that our audience feels like they’re on the same and equal playing field as us, because even though we’re on stage, we’re just two kids with a dream, we’re still just me&you,” explains Karlee. The siblings aren’t looking for fame, they’re looking for a connection. “We hope our music acts as a reminder that all we have is “me&you”, if anything is going to change in the world, it has to be me and you that do it together,” says Connor.
The duo blend their folk, americana, and country roots to create a wall of sound on stage, garnering opportunities to open for artists Kris Allen, Crystal Bowersox, Robert Ellis, Tyrone Wells, Jon Foreman, and Brad Corrigan. With a new EP in the mix, 2018 is sure to be their most exciting year to date.
