The pandemic wreaked havoc on all performing artists around the globe this year. Local veteran musical artists Brian Chaffee and Sarah Clarke spent much of 2019 developing what has become ‘Undertoe’ just in time for the closing of venues throughout the region. We spoke about their musical development and what’s next for this incredible duo.
Sarah Clarke & Brian Chaffee released ‘Undertoe’ digitally in 2020. Their first duo release together, they are no strangers to working together collaboratively.
Both attended local schools together and came up playing in the local school band and music programs.
Years later the two have worked in various regional venues and in a number of top regional bands.
Their release captures their ability to be soulful while also being intentional in their craftsmanship and arranging.
Whether intentional or not, many tracks capture the mood of our times. Recognize the loss but take heart in the ability to express; to heal. We’re sure you’ll find something on this release that speak to you.
