Who: Vandaveer, a.k.a. alt-folk pair Mark Charles Heidinger and Rose Guerin, who met during the heyday of DC’s folk collective known as The Federal Reserve. (If Heidinger’s velvet rasp makes him sound like a preacher’s son from Kentucky, well, he is.)
The pair, who delight in simple melodies with intricate harmonies, will release their third full-length album, Dig Down Deep, on April 26 through Supply & Demand Music. After that, it’s SXSW and a U.S. tour that should bring them our way in May/June (dates tba).
Reminds us of: Iron & Wine, She & Him
