Suitcase is a songwriting and performing project out of North Carolina. While piano, bass and percussion form the bones of the group, so much more colors the recordings. Don Jenkins and Joe Tappe have been honing their partnership for years, a partnership aspiring to the synthesis of the great partnerships of the past. With this new project, and the addition of Travis Williams on the bass, suitcase continues to define its voice. "Suitcase", a self titled, self produced EP, was the first of a 3 part story recounting the story of 2 every-men on a mission to save the world- a mission to face the basic challenges of being human. A new follow-up EP "home" was released in January of 2013. The final installment is due out in the summer of 2013.
Though thoroughly rooted in pop music, the project is not pigeon holed in the world of singable pop songs. The project has journeyed into the world of commercial work, movies, and TV. Nothing is off limits.
Suitcase is backbeat that gets inside, music that infects...the rebirth of "feel pop."
