Ryan and Fairen, Two singer-songwriters plying their trade as solo artists around the Midwest, Ryan and Fairen met at a gig and quickly fell in love. Collaborating on each other’s work for several years after, they eventually found greater satisfaction and inspiration in their combined efforts. The merging of sounds, tastes, and styles, along with a fresh backdrop among the swamps and trees of Gainesville, Florida, birthed Likely Lovely in early 2019. A live EP, “Waycross Sessions,” followed shortly after, capturing their raw, energetic take on the folk and Americana genres and providing the soundtrack of their continued touring of the Southeastern US.
