Chemistry & Magic, a real life love story. A musical adventure with one of the most catchiest, creative duos in town. A refreshing combination of familial and collaborative vocals, authentic lyrics and interactive melodies.

Imagine Paul Simon and Sting taking Patsy Cline to tea... sprinkle with curlique harmonies, progressive music and inspirational beats and you'll find the 'Hippie Gypsy Pop' husband and wife duo Tawny River. Unique.. refreshing...and great for Listening Rooms, Concerts, festivals and audiences of all kinds!

“The curlicue harmonies and parlor-strum arrangements in Tawny River's material – such as the wistful "Revolution" and the glam-culture-slamming "Hollywood" - reveals the influence of artists such as Alison Krauss and Paul Simon.” Matt Wake - AL.com/entertainment

She came from the West Coast (Seattle)... he came from the Great North (Quebec, Canada), they found each other at a songwriter's Sunday get together and spent the next 8 years writing their story into songs. Flash forward to two years ago, the duo announced their first play date at the Legendary Pucketts, Leipers Fork, home to General E Lee, and TV show Dukes of Hazard. After playing in Leipers Fork the duo has since been seen at the Listening Room, Mercy Lounge, The Basement, Kimbros Pickin Parlor, Antique Archaeology, The Row, Dan McGuinness, Tin Roof, South, The Blue Bar, Soulshine Pizza, The Billy Block Show, Bman & Chico Show, and many other venues, events, festivals, house concerts, and hotels.

Musically influenced by Sting, Paul Simon, The Beatles, Triumph, Rush, Django, John Denver, and Elvis. Sounds like Sublime, Sting, Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, Alison Kraus, Fleetwood Mac, and the Civil Wars.

“Such a delightful couple that has found the magic between song and harmony. Their chemistry is evident in every aspect. Nash holds the reigns in the musical arena with some impressive playing and pleasant harmonies. Tawny also carries the vocal wand with some wonderful voicing as well. Do yourself a favor and go see them whenever you can. I can't wait to have them back.” Perry Bonck - The Fleur de Lis Acoustic Series

Currently the duo is working with producer Ron Haffkine, producer for Shel Silverstein, Dr. Hook bringing life to songs like The Cover of the Rolling Stone, Freaking at the Freakers Ball and I got Stoned and I missed it. The twosome just released their first EP "The Kitchen Tapes", affectionately named after the fact that all of the music was created in the Kitchen. The EP, easy listening, happy, upbeat and fun really shows the duo's ability to create music that will make you smile. Stay tuned for more here or at http://tawnyriver.com.
