Water and Sand

One may be surprised to learn that this is the first collaboration between Cincinnati-based Kim Taylor and Boston-based Todd Thibaud. Not only do their voices blend beautifully, there’s a warmth between them that makes it seem like they’ve been performing together for years.

That sense of familiarity carries over to the songs that make up their debut release. The collection plays as a song cycle that examines a maturing relationship, viewing it with candor and remarkable grace. Titles like “The Hard Side of Love” and “Beauty and Cost” – “it’s the beauty and cost of loving you,” they sing – give a clear indication that this is no sugared perspective. Rather, it explores the challenges of keeping a relationship strong as time passes. While there’s a quiet weariness in these songs, there’s a tone of contentment as well. It’s a comfort that comes naturally in a relationship where two people have shared a lifetime of experiences, both good and bad.
Their debut album, (produced by Sean Staples), contains extremely refined arrangements, centered around acoustic guitars with subtle embellishments from guitars electric and slide, as well as strings and the occasional banjo. The instrumentation serves to amplify their voices and the words that they sing, and only adds to the albums allure.

Kim and Todd have performed regionally as a duo, and in 2016 did an extensive tour of Germany and Austria with bandmates - Thomas Juliano: electric guitar, & Sean Staples: bass, mandolin. They bring their four piece arrangement to The Burren this month for their first Boston area show.
