Both of them fell in love and got married and moved to Duluth. They have two children Hollis and Cyrus. They formed this band together. She once said, “I guess (music) was always kind of a dream, not something I ever thought I’d do, but every once in a while I’d have the thought that playing music would be fun. So Alan and I talked about it and then he and (bassist) John Nichols got together and came up with the idea of the band — slow and quiet.”
