In 2015, the guitarist met in Milwaukee and started composing music together to create a beautiful blend of classical, pop, jazz and folk, that will soothe and entertain. The duo’s debut album, Spirit of Gold, was released in the fall of 2015. The duet not only played guitars, but also sung, creating a sound that is intimate and yet sophisticated, harmonious and graceful all at once. Sara and Kenny spent many months on tour leading up to their second release, Familiar Rhythms. The album was recorded in Cosenza, Italy. Shortly after the duo relocated to London. Sara and Kenny are now releasing their third album, which is all instrumental, titled Landscapes. With five tracks that pairs Sara’s warm nylon-strung guitar with Kenny’s steel-strung big round jazz box. The five originals range from gentle pastoral colors to clean swinging jazz lines.

The songs have a nice flow of styles and the songwriting is romantic and memorable. Both are excellent performs and the chemistry between the two is audible.
