The story of The Scarlet Goodbye is unusual, and has been called “the most unlikely match in Minnesota music history”. Dan Murphy, who was pivotal in the launch of two seminal rock bands: Soul Asylum and Golden Smog, sold his guitars and amps and quit the game in 2012, in a letter published by Rolling Stone. A chance meeting at a Christmas Party with Yacht-Rocker and producer Jeff Arundel, led to the duo, whose careers spanned the same time frame but had essentially no other resemblance, to start writing and recording.

Two Harbors have released Four full-length albums of impressively cranked-up guitar-driven rock anthems. Originally joining forces in 2007 as Colonial Vipers Attack (which sounds like a would-be metal band), the members of Two Harbors played in groups you might have seen in the Let It Be bins, including Faux Jean and Divorcee.

John Swardson is a singer-songwriter based out of Minneapolis, MN. New song The Leaves available now
