The pair came together under tragic circumstance. Coury Palermo sang at the funeral of Jennifer’s father in January, 2008. Just weeks prior to that Jennifer Paige’s mother also passed away.
“Coury was a friend of my brother, and he was inspired to write a song for him after hearing the news”, says Paige. “A few weeks later, my brother gave me the demo to his song; and, over the next months while listening to my ipod on shuffle, “Not Enough” would come on and catch me completely off guard. Before I knew it, I’d be crying like a baby. I’ve always believed music to be a truly healing force, and that’s exactly what that song was for me. That was my serendipitous introduction to Coury.” ~ Jennifer Paige
Both artists continued to produce and tour worldwide with their solo endevours until late 2009 when their paths crossed again in Nashville. The pair became friends and began writing for Jennifer’s new record when they decided to form a duo. When asked why two successful solo performers would form a duo, Coury responded:
“Jen and I both want to create music that communicates honestly about the ups & downs of every day life – the good, bad and the uncomfortable. We are challenging ourselves to experiment beyond any preconceived box we’ve found ourselves in musically, and we’re loving the freedom that it brings.”
The sound is fresh; their voices compliment each other perfectly. I LOVE this record front to back! Check them out and SUPPORT INDEPENDENT MUSIC!
