Kieran Kane and Rayna Gellert first met at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, sharing a musical kindred-spiritedness in their restrained, roots-oriented approach to both songs and arrangements. After working together on songs for each other’s albums, Kieran’s Unguarded Moments and Rayna’s Workin’s Too Hard, they released their first duo album, The Ledges, in 2018, following it in 2019 with When the Sun Goes Down. In 2022, they continued their exploration of minimalist writing and recording with The Flowers That Bloom in Spring.
