Ask Robinson & Rohe how the duo was formed and they’ll look at each other as if to say, which beginning should we begin with? The two have known each other for over a decade, developing a friendship as they pursued their separate careers—spanning everything from playing Brazilian jazz gigs to composing orchestral scores.

Liam Robinson honed his wide-ranging skills as an original cast member of the award-winning play Warhorse', as musical director of Anaïs Mitchell’s off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown,” as a composer in the Red Light New Music collective, and as a member of the Becca Stevens Band.

Meanwhile, Jean Rohe began touring and recording with her band, Jean Rohe & the End of the World Show, honing a honeyed, far-ranging voice and collecting accolades along the way (“a sure-footed young singer-songwriter” - New York Times).

Despite their separate careers, the pair began exchanging lyrics and music—Robinson taking a fragment of writing from Rohe and delivering it back to her married to a melody. The collaborative process was the start of what would become their debut record, Hunger. It was also the start of their love story. Hunger is a record full of songs about love and land—often both at the same time.

Support comes from KATE ELLIS

Playing in festivals and concerts, from NY to London to Paris, Kate's timeless music reflects a love of classic singer/songwriters, from Gram Parsons and Gillian Welch, to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Leonard Cohen and Nanci Griffith. Kate’s southern country-folk roots come from her father who was an important early musical influence – he once played guitar with Hank Williams on the famous Louisiana Hayride, where Elvis and Johnny Cash started out. Kate’s emotional and seductive vocals take you into a world of private beauty, reflection and feelings. The music is always intimate and evocative – you listen and want to be there.

"Hits you straight in the heart. One of those artists that on first listen, you just know you’re going to love." TALK RADIO
