THE SEA THE SEA is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop duo-fronted band featuring what HuffPost calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song "Waiting" sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, earned features on Apple Music’s ‘Best of the Week’ and ‘A-List Singer/Songwriter’ lists. The band is gearing up to release their sophomore full-length album, From The Light, on June 1 (2018) and is currently touring the US as a four-piece with the addition of Cara May Gorman (vocals, synthesizer) and drummer and percussionist Stephen Struss.
Robby Hecht & Caroline Spence met while performing at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in 2013. Since then, these two friends have gotten into the habit of taking time off from their solo projects to write and sing together in their hometown of Nashville and on tour across the country. After their two duet singles, "Two People” and “Parallel Lines” were streamed nearly 8 million times on Spotify, Robby and Caroline figured they were doing something right and decided to write and record a full album. This new album, Two People, is named in honor of the first song they released together, but the title really speaks more to the heart of the collection itself. All of the songs on Two People are about the endlessly beautiful and difficult task of joining your life with another’s. In the case of Spence and Hecht, the results are elegant harmonies and effortlessly human songs that cut right to the point.
