With their sixteen foot camper and their 88 pound dog, Butter, they have been touring nationwide. Don't let their vagabond tendencies fool you-- this americana-folk duo are a compact team of close harmonies, versatile instrumentation, and deliberate songwriting all presented with a nudge of the elbow and a tongue in the cheek. Haunting, quirky, solemn, and spritely, The Rough & Tumble are for the faint of heart and the strong of will.
In 2011, the friends-turned-bandmates released their first EP, We Sing in Your House When You're Not There... we even ordered pizza., an exploration of watching other people's dogs while eating other people's food. Shortly after, the duo released their second EP, We Don't Believe in Monsters, Anymore... but will you please check under our beds?, wherein the band discovered that they did, in fact, still believe in monsters. In 2012, their third EP, For You, Now That You're Married... and for me, too., generated a sudden foreshadowing for the band, still noted in history books as the time they knew everything they didn't know.
In 2014, filmmaker friend Alyssa Pearson asked the duo to create a soundtrack for her upcoming film, Pieces and Pieces. Up for the challenge, the songwriters took on the task, tackling issues of PTSD, women's rights, war, and the love in between. While the film is still to be released, The Rough & Tumble released the seven songs, dually named Pieces and Pieces, on March 1, 2016.
As they closed out their second year as full time road musicians, The Rough & Tumble managed to squeeze a fourth companion into their 16 foot camper-- an 81 pound rescue pup named Pud. They made room for a few more songs, too, as they released Cardboard and Christmas Lights in February 2017, a 7-song EP compiling the earliest and latest years of their career, creating a song-by-song education of the less studied R&T fans, while adding a few new songs for the devout.
