Magic Magic Roses' Meditations On Nature

Sarah Simon and Kate Sweeney met over ten years ago through boyfriends at a dinner party. They first began playing Jimmie Rodgers covers in Sarah's living room and eventually made their first album there too, experimenting with at-home recording. Inspired by California's landscape, the duo makes meditative folk music, refencing blades of grass, beaches, canyons and valleys. 

When we first met and started writing we were both kind of new to California...we were taking trips and drives to areas outside of the Bay...I think that's something thats just stuck.

Since that fateful dinner party, they've ditched the boyfriends and made three full-length albums as Magic Magic Roses. River, their latest EP, was released this fall.
