You and I brings a breath of life to the stage with their personal songs steeped in the traditions of Bluegrass, Americana, and Country music with a modern Bohemian flare. Ashley Overa and Michael Malinowski are the songwriting duo who front the lively yet down to earth group of talented musicians. With both songwriters trained in modern and classical music, their songs consist of poetic lyrics and rich instrumental textures.
Since 2010, You and I has been performing both as a duo and as a full band consisting of upright bass, mandolin, guitar, percussion, fiddle, and the occasional banjo. Pulling from the traditions of homegrown country and infusing elements of the new and contemporary, You and I speaks to the generations of both yesterday and today.
Recently, this impressive duo and their talented backing band took up residence at Barber Shop Studios in Hopatcong, NJ. The five song EP was created with the expert guidance of Engineer/Producer Jeremy Gillespie and mastered by the renowned Earl Cohen.
The much-anticipated EP, In Time, was released on October 25, 2014. It is currently available for download on CdBaby, iTunes, and more.
