Wendlo is the Atlanta-based folk-pop duo of Jacob & Chelsea Hamilton. Jacob & Chelsea met in 2011, when Jacob moved to Chelsea’s hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. They soon found they shared a passion for music, and started playing open mics together whenever they could. Jacob proposed to Chelsea in October 2015 at their first official show, on the outdoor patio at Boulder Creek Coffee in Buford, Georgia. The music they played that night became the inspiration and the playlist for their eponymously-named Engagement Party EP.
Blackfoot Daisy formed in 2012 when long-time collaborators and songwriters Wendy DuMond and Don Sechelski decided to begin performing together on a regular basis. Don spent most of his early childhood in Texas and Wendy hails from Montana but grew-up in Oklahoma. They chose to name the band after a deer, drought, and pest-resistant prairie flower.
Don is a 30-plus year native of the Atlanta music scene and has also worked as a studio musician. He performed as a solo act and also performed with his son Adam Sechelski, at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Wendy began writing songs in 2009 and performing in 2012. As a duo, the band has played various venues in the Southeast, including Charles & Myrtle’s in Chattanooga, TN, Berkeley Bob’s Coffeehouse in Cullman AL, along with other venues in South Carolina and Georgia. Don’s son, Adam Sechelski will also sometimes join them at local Atlanta venues Smith’s Old Bar and the Red Light Café. The band has opened for Nashville songwriter, Kurt Fortmeyer; The Rosin Sisters; Copper into Steel; Vientos Del Pueblo, and Little Country Giants to name a few. They have also performed at Snellville Days, the Chastain Park Arts Festival, the Duluth Fall Festival, the Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and are currently performing this summer during the Little 5 Arts Alive concert series.
In November of 2015, Bobby Moore joined the band, rounding out the sound. Bobby is a native of Virginia, multi-instrumentalist, and award winning old-time fiddle and banjo player. Bobby took honors at the Old Time Fiddlers Convention in Galax, Virginia for bluegrass banjo in 1980 and bluegrass fiddle in 1992, 1993, 1994, 1998, 2002 and 2007.
The band released a three-song EP in 2015 and are currently working on a full-length album.
