Daron and Kelsey Macke have been making music together for over a decade.
Individually, they have experience performing for crowds of thousands and on national tv broadcasts, but together, they’re at the beginning of their journey.
The pair married in 2005, and resisted the call of a musical union for a while, each continuing to work on their own projects. Creative collaboration requires conflict-fighting for the perfect line, exact melody, or specific mood-and inviting that tension into a relationship can be dangerous business.
In 2011, the music was tired of waiting, and songs began to form, whether they liked it or not. After several discussions about the separate identities of spouse vs. bandmate, Wedding Day Rain was official. To keep things simple, an EP of Christmas standards was released to test the waters.
In 2013, Kelsey’s first novel, DAMSEL DISTRESSED, sold, and the band was presented with the opportunity to write and record a record of original songs inspired by the book. That album, their full-length debut, is IMOGEN UNLOCKED, and it will be released alongside the book in October 2014.
Their musical style is a mix of soaring harmonies, catchy choruses, and lyrics that linger. Guitar based instrumentation in a classic singer-songwriter style and modern vocals accentuate their singable folky pop songs.
