Serendipity​ is the best way to describe how Melissa Davies and Andrew Cloninger began their music collaboration. Andrew was recording his first EP in 10 years when Melissa came into the studio to record the cello parts. This session was the beginning of an interesting musical journey.

Melissa Davies lives in Rochester, NY, with her husband and two children. She is the cellist in the indie rock group Cottage Street Band and enjoys creating art installations and murals.

Andrew Cloninger resides in Canandaigua, NY, with his wife and son. He was the primary singer/songwriter in various Americana roots bands as well as the founding guitarist in the Daniel Bennett Group. Over the years Andrew has shared the stage with such acts as Father John Misty, Unwed Sailor, Joy Electric, and jazz great Charlie Hunter.
