Even the best bands in the world were local at some point, right? It's easy to forget something like that when looking for a new sound in your area to throw into your music rotation. Only so many good bands out there are already established. Why not catch up on some of those?
Sometimes, though, true gems can be found in the local scene. Aaron & Jane, an acoustic duo out of Glendale, definitely qualify as one such act. And what is most interesting about the pair is that—on paper at least—they seem like they should not even be together.
Aaron & Jane are Aaron Therol and Jane Kim, two Southern California musicians with little in common beyond a shared love for making music. Therol is a passionate guitarist with a gritty voice. Kim, on the other hand, is a classically trained cellist, and her soft, haunting vocals seem almost like an afterthought in the wake of Therol's powerful delivery. And they have only been making music together for just over a year at this point, having met in late August 2009. Yet somehow it works.
