Him & Her is a bluesy, jazzy, folksy band featuring singer songwriter Brenda Freed on vocals, and guitar or piano, Michael D’Eath (DEE-uth) on harmonica, and Duke Davis on upright bass. The full band features Curtis Clogston on pedal steel.
In 2005, Michael & Brenda’s band Texas Hot Flash won an Austin Music Award, self-released 3 CDs, performed throughout Central Texas and Southern California, and opened for the Charlie Daniels Band. Formed from those successful roots, Him & Her has since created a special musical chemistry and performed throughout the Texas Hill Country, the Midwest and in England. Duke Davis is an award winning singer songwriter, musician, producer, poet, free-lance writer, historian and cowboy. He’s had his own Western Swing Band, “Buckshot,” since 1979 and has produced over 230 recordings for dozens of artists. He is in high demand as a bassist having played with Mike Blakely the last six years, as well as with Him & Her. Couple Michael’s tasty harmonica playing with Brenda’s soulful voice and Duke’s upright bass and you get a powerful trio sound that is sure to delight listening audiences. Him & Her has released two albums, most recently, Him & Her In the Groove (2016).
In addition to their lives as performing musicians, Michael & Brenda have spent their time together supporting music for youth and through serving with local and national non-profits. Brenda served as a board member of Youth Taking Charge (501c3) ’s Young Artist Performance Incubator (YAPI) hosted an open mic for youth in Wimberley TX for 10 years that is now held at the Kerrville Folk Festival, and Michael as a former board member and chairman of the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation (501c3) and, currently, President of the Society for the Preservation and Advancement of the Harmonica (SPAH – also 501c3), both of which have vibrant youth programs. Brenda has an MA in Music Education & Music Therapy, and pioneered the Music Therapy program at the University of Iowa Hospitals. She also teaches voice workshops at national conferences and festivals, as well as privately via Skype and in her studio in Blanco TX, and produces a successful line of Effortless Music Instruction materials.
“Him & Her cover multiple genres with style, tight melodies, clever lyrics and great harp playing. From Traditional folk, to blues and good ole’ Texas Swing, Him & Her will keep your toes a tappin’ and put a smile on your face.” Tom Tranchilla, Songwriter’s Studio, KPFT, Houston, TX
Him & Her On Solid Ground, their debut CD, was released in 2013.
“Him & Her On Solid Ground is beautifully produced and showcases genuine talent and sweet regard for each other’s gifts. Their work is definitely on solid ground.” (Steve Gillette, Singer/Songwriter)
Him & Her came full circle in 2015 when they performed at the Kerrville Folk Festival where Brenda has taught the voice workshop for several years.
Him & Her In the Groove, the duo’s second CD, was released in January of 2016 and is a collection of 10 groovy, bluesy, jazzy tunes written or co-written by Brenda, by her co-writer JB Braden, and by Scottish singer songwriter Fraser Nimmo. Him & Her will soon be back in the studio soon for a new album to be released later in 2017, and is actively performing as the Him & Her Trio or duo.
