These Fine Moments, the Austin, Texas-based duo of Hilary Kaufmann and Robert Watts, delivers an honest blend of folk, pop and depression that borrows from ’70’s pop/rock (a la Fleetwood Mac, The Hollies, The Beatles) and American Indie (The Jayhawks, Decemberists, Shovels and Rope) with strong, lyric-centered co-vocals and lush harmonies.
“Immediately appealing pop music,” says Peter Blackstock of the Austin American Statesman. “Watts and Kaufmann are one of the better harmony vocal duos in town.”
Hardened and Tempered: hard enough to hold an edge; soft enough not to break. Austin-based duo Kristin Davidson and Carolyn Phillips live that balance and express it in their music. Their songs take root in the story-telling traditions of folk and country and flourish with textured melodies and harmonies, revealing an intimate look at the human condition from a perspective that the listener may not have previously considered.
“Neatly wrapped songs driven by slick harmonies, impressive fingerpicking, and lovelorn tales” — The Austin Chronicle.
