Q & A

All-time favorite song?


"Gentle on My Mind" by Glenn Campbell.

How do you describe your music to people?


Our music is like folk, Americana and indie-rock, but also pop. Essentially, we hope that it will please many different types of music listeners.

Tell us about how the band formed.


Well, we're siblings, so naturally when one of us started playing, the other had to follow suit and compete. We both started playing at a pretty young age, and through all the sibling fights, we got along well enough to play together most of the time. We didn't realize back then how much we needed each other as musicians... and how much we've learned from each other.

Tell us about your best gig in Sac.


Probably the City Of Trees Music Festival with Radio 94.7. We had the absolute best time playing with our full band for the first time on such a big stage!

Tell us about your worst gig.


One time on tour, we were young, no one was there. Like no one. Turned out to be one of our best performances, but still a bad memory.

What artist or band are you a little embarrassed to love, and why?


Actually ; we are proud of the music we listen too. Bad answer?

What was the first song you learned to play?


As a band, "Hold On Loosely" by 38 Special.

What's next for the band?


More live shows, touring and new music, which we are stoked on.

What's the story behind the band name?


We see me&you as us and you really. We want to remind ourselves and our fans that we're all the same, that we need to stand by each other to make change. Our biggest priority in music is connection, bringing people together.

What's your favorite local artist/group?


Manzanita, Nick Foster, Larisa Bryski.

Who are your biggest influences?


Gregory Alan Isakov, Lord Huron, Glenn Campbell, Gordon Lightfoot, Carole King, Sara Bareilles, John Mayer.

Who first inspired you to play music?


Definitely our dad. He was an avid musician when we were kids. We grew up with drum kits, pianos and guitars in the house.

Words to live by?


That's show biz, baby.
