Rebecca Loebe and Findlay Napier met on a songwriting retreat in Aldeburgh, a sleepy seaside town on the coast of England. “Sometimes when you get thrown into a co-write session, things just click,” says Napier. “This was one of those times.” After a weekend spent writing together they kept in touch and continued exchanging ideas from their respective home bases of Austin, TX and Glasgow, Scotland.
The Filthy Jokes EP is the result of eighteen months of transatlantic collaboration. Written and recorded across an ocean and many time zones, the album features six tracks Loebe and Napier composed and perform collaboratively.
