About THE BAND
Northern-born songwriters Alissa Abeler and Hannah Smith joined creative forces to form the duo now known as The Daily Fare. The pair grew up on opposite sides of the music world with influences ranging from Judy Garland and Adele to Beethoven and Bach, with a healthy dose of Broadway, punk cabaret, and 80s ballads sprinkled in the mix.
Their shared affection for poignant and evocative narrative teamed with years of playing small intimate shows have transformed the once-placid duo’s sound into the story-weaving powerhouse they are today. With characteristically unique vocal harmonies and engaging instrumentation, The Daily Fare are carving out a niche for themselves within the Americana genre while their honest and occasionally eccentric approach to storytelling continues to engage new listeners on this creative journey.
Their sound has been compared to First Aid Kit, The Milk Carton Kids, and The Civil Wars.
