About Jack and Eliza
JACK AND ELIZA IN CONCERT:
It's endless summer with indie pop duo Jack and Eliza, whose layered harmonies and nostalgic lyrics evoke breezy drives down the coast. Standout singles "Hold The Line" and "Secrets" take cues from '60s psychedelia and doo-wop vocals, earning the duo comparisons to The Beach Boys and The Mamas and the Papas. In concert the childhood friends-turned-collaborators carry their tunes to soaring heights with undeniable chemistry and easygoing stage presence. They carry the weight evenly by singing and playing guitar on each song, emphasizing the interplay between their perfectly synchronized vocals while keeping production at a bare minimum. The result is an unforgettable live experience that treats ticket buyers to a sunny dose of sweet simplicity.
Jack Staffen and Eliza Callahan grew up in Manhattan's West Village and started playing music at young ages. Staffen grew up enthralled with rock and roll and idolized Kurt Cobain, while Callahan studied classical guitar and later became the youngest winner of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest "Song of the Year" award -- an honor she nabbed at just 15 years old. The pair met in middle school when Callahan joined Staffen's garage band as a replacement drummer. After the group fizzled they began writing and playing together, eventually scoring a record deal with Yebo Music in 2013. They released their debut EP No Wonders in fall 2014 while in their sophomore year at college -- Staffen as a political science and history major at New York University and Callahan as a visual art and creative writing major at Columbia University. The release boasted production by Chris Zane (Mumford & Sons, The Walkmen, Passion Pit) and included catchy singles "Hold The Line" and "Secrets". With their modern take on '60s surf rock making waves in indie circles, Jack and Eliza are proving themselves a must-see live act.
