We had the chance to talk with the two couple. Fairview to discusses their journey and where they are at today.

Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

We formed in High School and have been dating and writing songs together ever since! We started out playing local shows around Chicago and have gone on to play all over the country, touring with artists like Plain White Ts, Tyler Hilton, and Gaten Matarazzo from the show Stranger Things. It’s been a cool experience to see something we were passionate about in highschool develop into something we get to call our job.

Where are you from?

We’re from the suburbs of Chicago! The two of us actually met in grade school.

When did you start music?

We both started playing piano really young. So there was always music in our homes, but then writing songs started to be something we would do together in highschool. We think about this all the time, but we really do feel so lucky to get to to do these things together. The songwriting process can definitely be tedious at times, but getting to bounce ideas off of each other, and critique each other’s work has only made us better.

How did you get into music?

I think music has always just been a part of our hobbies. Like we said, playing piano and guitar from a young age, going to concerts as kids, we always had that in our hearts as something we wanted to do. In highschool, we took every single opportunity we could to play a show. We auditioned to play music in the lobby of our local movie theatre every weekend, we took shows playing in small clubs all across the midwest where we wouldn’t make a dime, but being like 17, we always came out of those experiences thinking it was the coolest thing ever. We really put ourselves out there from such an early age. And so to see ourselves come so far as touring artists, writers, etc from those days really feels so rewarding. It just goes to show that you have to take every opportunity, and not give up and little by little you look back and see just how far you’ve come.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

I think the most challenging thing in life is loosing someone close to you. When it happens, it puts things in perspective- just how short life is, and how it’s so important to really live the life you want. We are both so lucky to have such encouraging, supportive families. But when we’ve lost people who are close to us, it just shifts your vision from worrying about the little things, to making sure you’re on a path that will truly make you happy, and fulfilled.

Are you currently signed or independent?

We started working with Tom Higgenson from the band Plain White T’s a few years back, and we were actually the first band signed to his record label, Humans Were Here.

Who inspires you the most musically?

Love this question! We’re big Disney lovers, so two of our biggest inspirations are Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, they wrote the soundtracks for Beauty and the Beast, Little Mermaid. The two of them had a way with melodies and lyrics that create pure magic. And i think that’s what we strive to do- create something that truly makes the listener feel. (There’s power in a strong duo when it comes to songwriting…haha!)

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

The most important thing for us is that it creates emotion. Whatever that song is about, our goal is for people to feel through our songs. If they’re sad and listen to one of our sad songs, we hope they can pour into that. And if they’re in love and listen to our love songs, hopefully they can feel that magic.

Any new music coming out soon?

We’ve been spending a lot of this past year of quarantine writing, getting some new ideas rolling and we’re actually going into the studio next month to start recording a full length album.

Do you produce your own music? If not who do you work with?

We work with the really talented people at our label, Humans Were Here. Our songs are produced by their head engineer, Dan Monahan, and label founder, Tom Higgenson
