THE SEA THE SEA
is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop duo-band featuring what Huffington Post calls, ?Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.? Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song "Waiting" sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Mountain Stage host Larry Groce calls them "ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing." Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, recently earned features by Apple Music including Best of the Week and A-List Singer/Songwriter.

PLANES ON PAPER
"The songs played by Planes on Paper have contemplation at their core. As heard on the Yakima duo's sole EP, Ruins, Navid Eliot and Jen Borst use delicate harmonies, well-wrought lyricism, and a deep understanding of pop songcraft to patiently explore ideas and landscapes that bloom from banal to unforgettable."
Mark Baumgarten, Seattle Weekly
"Navid Eliot and Jen Borst?s music as Planes on Paper is built around the duo?s talent for crafting layered, meticulous folk songs matched with organic, skillful playing."

"[...] it?s easy to see why Planes on Paper is starting to attract serious attention on the neo-folkie scene."
-Paul de Barros, The Seattle Times
