Meeting in December 2012, Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney quickly hit it off with their musical similarities. The two began writing together and from those sessions their relationship grew to include performing together. From there, they discovered an infectious original sound all their own, mixing country rock/pop seamlessly throughout intimate power ballads and stadium-worthy hits including their debut, "19 You + Me."
Dan was born and raised in suburban Wexford, Pennsylvania and has been writing and playing music since the age of 12. A Nashvillian since 2010, Dan has been on the local songwriting scene for several years. Musical influences range from Ryan Adams and Tom Petty to Kenny Chesney and Alison Krauss.
Born and raised in Natural Dam, Arkansas, Shay has been singing since he was a young child. At 14 years old he fell in love with songwriting and at 16 he started learning the guitar. He lives in Nashville now but grew up frequently visiting and recording in Music City. Musical influences include Rascal Flatts, Dave Matthews Band, Usher and Kenny Chesney.
"Shay and I were jamming, and we’ve been writing three songs a day ever since."
