Dane Larson and Christina Ellis live in the greater Phoenix area, performing at coffee shops and other small venues. The pair received online attention with their song "Lullaby for a Princess", written for the My Little Pony fanbase. It inspired several covers, translations, re-interpretations, and an animation with over 30 million views on YouTube. Our songs take inspiration from the lush world of cartoons, with sonic landscapes ranging from sugary and fun to melancholic and dark, on topics as varied as airships, magical princesses, made-up languages, and the changing of the seasons.
Elton John, ELO, The Beatles, Radiohead, Regina Spektor, Muse, and lots of Disney films. Our songs are playful and theatrical, with big orchestration, surprising chord progressions, and lyrics ranging from the mundane to the fantastic, all focused through a lens that is both cheeky and empathetic.
Depending on the success of Heart in a Cloud, we would like to spend more time working on music. Both of us have day jobs, and this album has been a long time in the making.
We'll tell you when we release new music!
