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

Colin Gilmore, a Lubbock native and son of well known Lubbock singer/songwriter Jimmie Dale Gilmore, 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."

Together, they bring an irresistibly compelling melding of voices that are each haunting and melodic in their own right, with the whole being somehow greater than the sum of the parts.
