BIO

"Over the past several years, the husband-and-wife team of singer-songwriters Lindsay and Jeremy (Lindsay Weidmann and Jeremy Facknitz) have both been impressively prolific when it comes to their solo performances... that said, whenever Lindsay and Jeremy do combine talents, their audiences are in for a singular treat. One need look no further for evidence than the pair’s collaborative 2012 LP Small Lives, a collection of luscious, urbane folk-pop. Tracks like the string-kissed ballad “Pick Me Up” and the amiable shuffle of “March to Boston” exude elegance and charm, showcasing Weidmann and Facknitz’s warm vocals and clever lyrics.


The pair first met at Rico’s in 2009, the same year that both artists were nominated for “Solo Performer of the Year” in the Pikes Peak Arts Council Awards.

(Incidentally, speaking of awards, Detroit native Facknitz received a 2001 Detroit Music Award for “Best New Alternative Group” with his band The Ottomans, edging out competitors including none other than The White Stripes.)

While the Pikes Peak Arts Council honors went to Cahalen Morrison that year, Facknitz and Weidmann found chemistry. 


“We decided someday we’d tour together, which finally happened in the summer of 2010,” says Facknitz. “We toured the Pacific Northwest, and it was a financial disaster. Even though it wasn’t my first time up there and I thought I had made an impression on people, we played for empty chairs most nights. But we fell in love, and now we’re married with two kids. In that way, it was a huge success.” "
