Colin Gilmore and Nicolette Good began playing and singing as a duet in 2014 after hearing each other's compelling songwriting. 

Coling Gilmore, a Lubbock native, spent many nights as a child in nightclubs such as Stubbs, where he witnessed songwriters like Joe Ely, Terry Allen and his own father, Jimmie Dale Gilmore. He developed a taste for Buddy Holly, Townes Van Zandt and bands such as The Clash and The Pogues.

Gilmore has been writing, performing and touring for more than a decade. His latest release, The Wild and Hollow, recorded in Austin and Chicago, showcases rich arrangements and instrumentation while still leaning on his roots rock and singer/songwriter foundation.

Nicolette Good is a Texas singer-songwriter and 2012 winner of the Kerrville New Folk competition. In a voice that's at once refined and raw, Nicolette sings with penetrating insight about hope, wrenching love, and the mysteries of everyday life. 

Her clever and effortless storytelling shines in toe-tappers like "Aloha" and "All the Time in the World." Songs like "Hurricane Caroline" tell intimate stories of enigmatic, tragic characters. Nicolette released "Little Boat on a Wave" (2015) following a residential artist program called The Lighthouse Works in New York. Critics have called her “a songwriter to follow” and “a poet of the first order."
