Biography

"I appreciate the sincerity of the emotion along with the negative-space lyrics that point to something by referring to everything around it."From their ongoing conversation spanning religion, spirituality and the nature of consciousness comes the genre-fluid music of vocalist, Lora Nigro and guitarist, Kevin Rutkowski. The cryptic yet sensual quality elucidated by Nigro's songs "refuses to be pigeon-holed" by the industry's propensity for narrow categorization.

Their lushly orchestral debut LP, "I Am" produced by Vincent Gaudes and mastered by 12 time Grammy awarded Mastering Engineer, Bob Ludwig was meticulously crafted over a four year period with Emmy winning composer, Peter Buffett and multi-instrumentalist Rob McWilliam, whose swooning stand-up and stick bass bridged the original lineup. "Sometimes Y" followed up with the LP "That's Not What I Heard" and performed throughout the midwest.

As 11th Story, the duo continues to produces fresh material alongside their documentary projects while enjoying panoramic sunsets with Pan, their Russian Blue from the 11th floor of their downtown Milwaukee high-rise.

This (Turnaround) is like death cab for cutie mixed with some Regina Spektor... with your own flair of course. This is really goood! ❤. —Kanata, Canada

First off, LOVE the sample (Knowledge). And the lyrics. Holy crap. We're an indie duo too, just hit you up on IG —@allfutureselves
