Icon: Buffy Sainte-Marie

When asked about our influences as a band, Jordan and I will always talk about Buffy Sainte-Marie. A Canadian-born folk singer and songwriter, she drew from her Native American heritage, her personal struggles, and the politics of her time to create music that influenced her contemporaries of the 60's and 70's and continues to make an impact today. When we started this project, some of our first songs were Buffy covers and you'll still hear us play them. Her voice, music, and even personal style are one of a kind. Here are some videos!
