Dave and Janel are an acoustic duo originally from Paynesville, MN. Their songwriting tells of personal truths and allows the listener to experience life's difficult moments through their eyes. Once described as beautifully simple harmony and guitar, their songs will lead you through a gammet of emotions from just plain feel-good songs to songs that will inspire you to look a little deeper.
Janel has been singing since she was a little girl. Her mother would play guitar and teach her three little daughters old country classics. Since then, Janel's preference in music has broadened, but the gift of music remains a strong influence in her life.
Dave, however, only discovered his musical talents during college when he first learned to play guitar. Four years ago, he decided to share his voice with others, beyond just singing in the car or shower.
After playing at family and friend get-togethers and open mics, Dave and Janel decided to venture into the world of public performance. A good friend let them open for his show, and since then they've been hooked. Dave and Janel have been a couple for 8 years, performing for 4 years and married for 1 year.
