The Locksmiths are a family band mixing rich harmonies with evocative lyrics. The Queens natives weave a Southern Gothic tapestry through bluegrass-inspired folk-rock. Robert and Krissy met in 2010 through a mutual friend forming a band. Taking their mutual love of The Beatles as well as their admiration of Americana artists like The Band and Gillian Welch, they began crafting their own sound. The Locksmiths soon took shape in New York City and have since toured major cities including Nashville, Austin, and Indianapolis. They released their debut album in 2016 (backed by Cole Quest & The City Pickers) to positive reviews. Whether singing about love and despair or triumph and tragedy, their songs not only inhabit a world of Faulkneresque proportions but also envelop the personal lives of the writers as well.
