Folk-pop Duo Chasing Lovely Comes to the Stoner Theater in June!

May 3, 2018

DES MOINES, Iowa — Des Moines Performing Arts is pleased to announce that folk-pop duo, Chasing Lovely, will stop at the Stoner Theater on Friday, June 22, 2018 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to Chasing Lovely will go on sale Friday, May 4, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. and can be purchased at DMPA.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, and by phone at (515) 246-2300.

Folk-pop duo Chasing Lovely combine haunting harmonies, powerful melodies, and insightful lyrics to create a truly captivating acoustic performance. With their latest EP, "Things We Don't Talk About,” they candidly open up about both personal and cultural conflict, addressing subjects normally considered taboo. The Korean American sisters grew up in Minneapolis, MN, moved to Nashville in 2011 and spent six years cutting their teeth in Music City before relocating to Atlanta in April 2017. Chloe and Taylor have had the privilege of working alongside producers and musicians who have worked with Mumford & Sons, Joy Williams, Ingrid Michaelson, Meghan Trainor, Gungor, and Ben Rector.

The duo was very well received at their first appearance at the famed  30A Songwriters Festival in January. Their summer dates include two popular Midwest festivals, Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI, and Mile of Music in Appleton, WI. Chasing Lovely's mission is to provoke thought, promote understanding, and capture both glimmers of light and darkness as they share the deeply moving human experience through song.
