New York City (May 17, 2014) The eclectic, acoustic-oriented sound of Addi & Jacq is not exactly easy to categorize, but that hasn’t prevented the NYC-based duo from acquiring an enthusiastic and diverse following.
Coming from very different backgrounds, their individual styles have blended to create a soulful mix of folk, classical, jazz, pop and R&B. Their greatest musical inﬂuences are drawn from Nellie McKay, Feist, & Rufus Wainwright.
The title track “Less Likely Places” was loosely based on a Craigslist post from a woman in Arizona, “You can find something great in the less likely places”. Her story would ultimately be the impetus for creating the album.
“We talked a lot about what really inspired us – human connection in music and in life, the beauty in the imperfect and the magic in the spontaneous, but what seemed to be the greatest desire for both of us was to create something that was truly our own,” shared Kerrod. “We stumbled upon something that continues to bring light and creativity to the forefront of our lives and we’re running with it,” McDaniel adds.
