Elizabeth was born and raised in Mattoon. My husband and I met in music school in St. Paul, MN. He is from a small island in Maine.
After graduating with our bachelors in vocal performance, we moved to Fort Myers Beach, FL for four years, where we played an average of 10 shows a week. We moved back to St. Paul a year a half ago, to further our careers.
Elizabeth and Brady first met in 2008, while attending McNally Smith College of Music, in Saint Paul MN. As Their passion for singing together grew and they began attending open mic nights around downtown Saint Paul, to test out their new material.
From 2008 to 2012 Liz and Brady were both members of their school’s flagship contemporary vocal ensemble. The group’s meticulous focus on the blending of voices gave these two the discipline and respect for the art of vocal harmony.
In the fall of 2010 Liz and Brady put together a five piece party band called “The Sugar Benders.” The Band’s eclectic sound and fun loving attitude landed them gigs in many casinos around the midwest area such as Treasure Island and Mystic Lake. “The Sugar Benders” also gained the privilege of playing the opening ceremony of Saint Paul’s famous winter carnival in 2011.
