Artist Biography:
Beth // James is an indie folk duo from Austin, Texas made up of award winning singer-songwriters Mikaela Beth Kahn and Jordan James Burchill. Their original songs and razor sharp musicianship pick up where the Civil Wars left off. Their debut EP, All In Life, is "a shimmering mix of modern folk, mindful pop, and Americana charm," according to Paste Magazine.

The duo only began writing together a year ago, though they met in 2008 while studying jazz at the University of North Texas. Through the years they've played in various bands together, but All In Life takes their musical chemistry to the next level. Creating their own unique sound, Beth // James navigates effortlessly among American music traditions, rooted in storytelling, but with added indie pop/rock elements, intricate guitar work and arresting harmony.

All In Life, their debut EP, will be released April 28th, 2017.
