A female duo consisting of an acoustic guitarist (Alexa Cordova) and lead vocalist (Rebeca Salazar), their motto is: Keep it simple.
With both artists coming from opposite ends, the singer from Chicago, IL and the guitarist a Texas native, they both currently reside in The Music Capital of the World - Austin, TX.
Their talents complement one another and come with meaning and passion.
