I don't know what I want from you
I pretend that I do
I'm sure you see it in my eyes
I'm sure you feel it in my grip

Friends as teens in a DC church choir, Maureen Andary and Sara Curtin reunited in 2008 when Maureen was selected as a finalist in the Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. Maureen knew Sara was pretty much the only person she could think of who would be able to do the high harmonies in her songs.
In their short time as a band, the women have been wowing audiences with quirky-smart, self-aware songs, beautifully intertwined soprano voices, and a plethora of musical instruments including guitar, ukulele, flute, glockenspiel and kazoo, to name a few!
