Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman
     For a duo that has existed for only two short years, Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman have accomplished some amazing feats!  Following the release of Melody's critically acclaimed debut album Gold Rush Goddess, Melody and Jacob have toured all over the US as a duo and in up-and-coming progressive bluegrass band Front Country.  Gold Rush Goddess was named one of No Depression's top 50 albums of 2012, and this April, Melody won the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at MerleFest for her secular humanist gospel song "Black Grace".  Front Country took home the gold in both the RockyGrass and Telluride band competitions and is up for an IBMA Momentum Award this fall.  Between these triumphs, Melody and Jacob occasionally make it back to their San Francisco Bay Area home, rebuilding their lives together as two people whose bond has only tightened with all this travel and success.

In October 2013, Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman released their first duo album We Made It Home, capturing the essence of their experiences on the road and of returning.  Produced by Grammy-winning bluegrass/roots music legend Laurie Lewis, the album projects comfort and intimacy.  Their voices raised in harmony, their instruments intertwined, Melody and Jacob's original songs and carefully chosen covers tap into their collective eclecticism.  Under the layers of rich acoustic tones and powerful vocals, the songs draw from the realms of astronomy, ethnomusicology, feminism, folklore, and family history.  The power of Melody and Jacob's duets make these different topics seem natural together, like a fascinating dinner table conversation, and the ease with which they create music together can only be born from two people who've traveled long miles, finding home wherever they are.
