Escondido

Nashville’s alt-country duo Escondido caught lightning in a bottle on their debut album back in 2013 .  Recorded in a day just two months following Jessica Maros’ and Tyler James’ auspicious meeting, The Ghost of Escondido caught the attention of a number of Hollywood luminaries (most notably director David Lynch) and singles from the album eventually made it into popular TV shows such as HBO’s Girls.
