You Knew Me When to perform at Ten Depot St.
LA GRANDE — It’s been six years since the husband and wife indie folk-rock duo known as You Knew Me When uprooted from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in 2012. The duo had initially planned to tour the nation for a full year — but they never stopped. Since that time, they have been serving up their craft brewed compositions, a term coined from their more than 180 craft brewery performances, coast to coast throughout the USA and into Canada. Now based in southwestern Colorado, the duo are back on the road once again with their new album “Into the Looking Glass” and will perform at Ten Depot Street in La Grande
The show will begin at 8 p.m. March 29. There is no cover charge. For more details about the venue, go to www.tendepotstreet.com.
Outfitted with an array of instruments, You Knew Me When are a Colorado based duo that present a full band sound. While blending their vocals, Karisa, who previously served as a tenured Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele, glockenspiel, and percussive elements, as Cie, who spent several years as the Global Events Manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and other rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style and live show that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a rock ‘n roll mentality.
You Knew Me When’s 2017 release “Into The Looking Glass” is the duo’s third studio album. At times upbeat and folksy, at times brooding and reflective, the album aims at introspection for the couple’s continued journey while sharing experiences gained from over five years of nonstop touring. Physical and digital copies of You Knew Me When’s albums are available at www.youknewmewhen.com. The albums are also available on iTunes, Amazon, and other online music stores. Listen to You Knew Me When online via Pandora, Spotify, iTunes Music, and other online radio sources.
