Austin duo Beth // James' debut EP, All In Life, is the product of two award winning musicians, Mikaela Beth Kahn and Jordan James Burchill. The name comes from two halves of one whole, taking a piece of each artists' middle name to create one entity. Often compared to The Civil Wars, Beth // James navigates effortlessly among American music traditions, rooted in storytelling, but with added indie pop/rock elements, intricate guitar work and arresting harmony.
The duo began writing together in 2015, though they met in 2008 while studying jazz at the University of North Texas. In April 2017, the duo released their debut EP All In Life, and received critical acclaim from Austin-based and national media alike. Tackling love, their adopted hometown of Austin, and more, All In Life is simultaneously unexpected and familiar, infused with "a shimmering mix of modern folk, mindful pop, and Americana Charm. The EP taps into the should of a rhythmic back and forth between two distinct voices blending into one, "according to Paste Magazine. Most recently, their song "Lion Eyes", was featured in Spike Lee's Academy Award-winning feature film 'BlacKkKlansman'.
Beth // James' second EP, Falling, released on Friday, February 1st, 2019. With just three tracks, Falling is their most personal compilation of songs yet. The duo takes listeners on a heartfelt journey, dealing with the disappointments, confusion and struggles of the past year, all the while maintaining hope.
