She adds that these layers to the relationship haven’t been much of a challenge and says, “In fact, it has contributed positively to whole experience. It's also a way for us to spend time together with each other doing something we both love.”
The folk/roots music scene has a strong sense of community that appeals to Liv. She says, “Between the great festivals that we've been to and heard of and a bunch of the other smaller folk communities within cities and areas, it’s amazing. It's interesting to be a part of that network and see how much crossover there is. Everywhere we go, there's always someone who is familiar with people you know. It's a strong, supportive community!”
There are two major future goals for the duo. Liv says, “On the last night of our tour, Braden turned to me and said, ‘Why don't we think about setting a goal of, within a year, being able to pursue music full-time without any other employment commitments’ - so that's something we have been keeping in our minds and working towards.”
The second goal for the band is to tour more, both regionally and internationally, but that will remain a long term goal because of the costs associated with tours of larger scope.
Inspiration comes from many sources for Liv. She says, “I think it's the people I meet and the stories they share about their experiences with the world. I’m inspired by thinking about people’s different philosophies and our relationships to the world and to each other.”
