They just moved back to Austin. A decade in Los Angeles was too long.
Classically trained from a young age, the brothers started violin lessons at 3 and were educated at a boys choir school in Texas. They didn’t play in bands until high school when they taught themselves guitar and bass, inspired after a friend introduced them to the pop genius of the Beatles.
The twins have collaborated with several Austin indie bands, such as …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and PT Banks, as well as worked with the artist, Moby. They found their way to Los Angeles after Joel earned a scholarship to study medieval and renaissance music; Jon followed two years later to work as a recording engineer.
Calico Sky was officially created after Moby invited his friends and colleagues to produce unique covers of his song, Almost Home. The brothers were already experimenting with hardware synthesizers in their home studio in Echo Park, L.A. Inspired by David Bowie's Labryinth, they began developing a sound evoking '80s nostalgia, highlighted by Beatlesque vocal harmonies.
Calico Sky released their first single, Stay in Bed, Friday, August 21st.
