<i>The Long Surrender</i> is a project that nearly didn't happen, and is one of the great success stories of crowdfunded music. When industry backing dropped out, Bergquist and Detwiler turned to fans for help.

<i>The Long Surrender</i> is also the fruit of a collaboration with multiple Grammy winner Joe Henry, whose producerly pixie dust has resulted in career-highlight recordings by the likes of Elvis Costello, Mavis Staples and Allen Toussaint.

Among the new record's influences, Detweiler lists "old gospel hymns, the country and western (…), rock and roll records the kids at school passed around, the symphonic music that my father brought home, the jazz musicians we discovered in college, the Great American Songbook” and more.

In true DIY fashion, Bergquist and Detweiler don't just make music: They also dabble in coffee. You can order OTR beans--an organic, fair-trade blend--through overtherhine.com. Photo for NBC by <a href="http://www.ericacamilleproductions.com" target="_blank" title="Erica Camille">Erica Camille.</a>
