Both Alexandra and Garen walked down the same high school hallways for years, never saying more than a few “Heys” to each other in shared classes. After losing touch within the first few months of college, they reconnected 6 years later for coffee; which turned into the 8 hour date that would start their lives together.
Quickly learning about each other’s passion for music, Garen shared his current band’s music with Alex, who in turn shared songs she was currently in the studio recording, with him. They fell in love fast, and were living together within the month.
Both pursuing music separately, they often talked about collaborating- however conversations usually ended abruptly; unable to decide if their music should be vocally or instrumentally driven. Eventually after much discussion, Alex and Garen came to the realization that not all music needed to be driven by just one or the other, and decided to give their efforts a real shot. Having left their other bands, Alex and Garen pursued Let's Play House, striving for a sound not many have tackled; a raw, hard hitting, stripped down musical style in which both the vocals and instrumental are equally important, and dominant.
Now engaged to be married, Alex and Garen spend their time writing, recording, and performing together. Their songs about love, and love gone wrong, infuse folk music with the blues. As a duo, Alex and Garen bring a modern twist to an iconic style, and as a couple, they’ve taken their love of music, and each other, to bring you Let's Play House.
