JARED & AMBER
Jared and Amber are in love with each other and with music, so naturally, they started making music together. Both went to school for music and quickly decided music was great and school was not. In 2006, they were married and moved to the lovely city of Decatur in 2011 to pursue music together full-time. Since then they have had the pleasure of playing TEDx Atlanta, writing for other artists, winning Eddie's Attic 2012 Songwriter Shootout, and being named one of the top 7 bands in Atlanta by AXS. They play their own brand of theatrical folk rock, and stand out from other rootsy duos with their soaring harmonies and intricate arrangements. Along for the ride are Audrey & Autumn (the twins!), their dog Ramona, a lot of coffee, and some fantastic family and friends.
Adam Whipple has spent years on the road, honing and polishing his stage presence and songcraft, but he cut his teeth as a writer at the famed New City Café, Knoxville's one-time home for creative musical expression that became a proving ground for artists like Andrew Peterson, David Wilcox, Derek Webb, Sandra McCracken, Among Savages (Peter Barbee), Ed Cash, and Jennifer Daniels. Fast forward fifteen years, and you’ll find Adam as a skilled multi-instrumentalist, arranger, and composer laboring to support numerous other artists in addition to doing his own personal work. His new full-length project, The Broken Seasons, is the product of a successful crowdfunding campaign and has already garnered critical acclaim.
Adam is also the leading editor of the arts journal Foundling House, based in Knoxville and publishing poetic, prosaic, review, and essay content from around the country. Adam’s work has been published in Curator Magazine, on Analogue, and in Molehill by Rabbit Room Press, along with his own independently published chapbook A Channel to the Sea.
