About this Event

joan is more than a name—it's a feeling. Together, Arkansas duo Alan Thomas and Steven Rutherford craft indelible synth-pop with a strong emotional quotient that sounds timeless. Thomas and Rutherford are crafting new memories for future generations, and if last year’s portra EP and the new single "ease your mind" are any indication, they’re just getting started.

Both members of joan grew up in the same state, but it took a bit for them to join forces. Thomas grew up playing sports but was drawn to music early on by his father, who gigged as a bassist in various bands throughout the 1980s and '90s. He took to the drums at age 11, and studied music in college while becoming proficient in production software in his spare time—but a chance encounter with a professor unlocked his true calling. "I had a music teacher who taught ear training," he remembers. "I went in for my first ear training test and I started singing scales, and she stopped me and said, 'Alan, you have a really nice voice.' I said, 'I do?' I knew my mom thought so, but from then on I thought, 'Maybe I could sing.'"
