Guy-Girl Duo Playlist


We’re seeing a kind of trend in music with songwriters who have a dynamic duo of male-female lead members.

Case-and-point is the success of The Civil Wars (featured this week). But they’re not alone. There are some established Guy/Girl Duos as well as others taking that model of style and trying to replicate the songwriting success of others. This week we take a look at both the established names as well as the emerging acts who are coming into the mix. Enjoy!
