There have been many great musical duos over the years that have captured our listening ears. I was raised on a few like Simon & Garfunkel and The Carpenters, but many more come to mind: Hall & Oates, Sonny & Cher, Ike and Tina, The Righteous Brothers, The Everly Brothers, The Judds, The Indigo Girls, The Captain and Tennille, Kris Kross. Okay, okay, I’ll stop. (And yes, a few of those aren’t so great, but they are funny to think about.)
Returning to my point, I believe the great duos have some new company.
I absolutely love these three relatively new duos, all male-female vocal partnerships whose melodies, harmonies, lyrics, and even banter have me hooked. I consider myself lucky to live in a city where all will perform live between now and the end of July, and I hope you find yourself so fortunate as well.
Whether you are able to catch them live, watch videos online, create a Pandora station, or go the classic route and listen to them via stereo system (dare I say record player), find your way to these voices. You may recognize members of these duos from other projects or bands, but don’t miss these very special blends before moving on. Somehow, the sounds of all three complement the scent of honeysuckle, the taste of sweet tea, and the breeze on a front porch just as well as they would a walk down a busy city street on a misty day.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
