Escondido, Part 1

Singer-Songwriter

How many bands have received a rave review from none other than David Lynch? We're guessing not that many. This Nashville-based duo has been making waves since their debut album, 'The Ghost of Escondido', was released in 2013. That album (which was recorded in a single day!) got them appearances on Conan, Nashville, and HBO's Girls. They released their 2nd album, 'Walking With A Stranger', in 2016, then headlined a national tour. We sat down with Tyler James to talk all things Nashville.
