Kerry Grombacher and Aspen Black, both successful solo artists, have worked together as a duo since 2013, performing for arts councils, and at festivals and libraries. Their songs draw vivid portraits and tell fascinating stories that are set in the Western landscape, where they've worked and traveled with cowboys and Indians, ranchers and rodeo riders, outfitters and chuckwagon cooks, and lawmen and lawbreakers.

Kerry Grombacher plays guitar and mandolin, writes contemporary western songs, and tours nationally for concerts and writing workshops. His songs have been featured on the ABC-TV adventure travel show, "Born to Explore," and on the Putumayo World Records CD "Cowboy Playground," which was released in over 60 countries. He has released five albums of original songs, and his songs have been recorded by a list of artists that includes Jim Jones, Belinda Gail, The Texas Trailhands, Gary Prescott, and Trails & Rails.

Aspen Black plays guitar and bass, and she writes songs and poems that draw on her experiences training and showing horses, riding the rodeo circuit, and traveling in the west. Aspen released a new CD of Cowboy Poetry, "Tales from the Road," in 2017. Aspen's "Lovin' the West" won the Rural Roots Music Commission's 2017 Classic Western CD of the Year award, and her "Eastern-Western Cowgirl" was the 2015 Female Country-Western CD of the Year. She was a Top Five finalist for the Western Music Association's Female Poet of the Year in 2015, 2016, and 2017, and her poetry CD, "Invisibility," was a Top Five finalist for Cowboy Poetry CD of the Year in both 2015 and 2016.
