Bradford and Beth have been working their collective butts off, doing a ton of press for this release. I commend them for their enthusiasm and drive. The talent that these two bring to the table is incredible; they are both amazing singer/songwriters in their own right. To have them both on the same project is a double-threat. I’m very honored that MTS has the pleasure of working on The Banner Days.”

The duo of Bradford Loomis (guitar, vocals) and Beth Whitney (ukelele, vocals) began as a casual co-writing experiment. From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator, Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend. With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists.
