Lyons and Pakchar's collaboration began in 2012 when the two met touring on the first national tour of The Book of Mormon. The two have recorded a debut record "#Love (Live)," an 11-song album that mixes pop, R&B and theatre to explore "the good, bad and the awkward roller coasters of human relationships." They've also played to sold-out audiences at Rockwood Music Hall, The Cutting Room and 54 Below, and they were recently selected for the 2014 Johnny Mercer Songwriting Project.
