Grace and Alex Fincher wed in 2021, moving to Nashville, TN and establishing Indie Folk/New Bluegrass duo, “River & Rail.” They have since developed a mature and unique act, performing over 100 shows- opening for acts such as Willi Carlisle, Esme Patterson, and Dawson Hollow.

Possessing a voice that is equal parts haunting and agile, Grace’s songwriting quickly captivates the audience. Alex’s textural, melodic acoustic guitar and mandolin weaves in between as he adds plaintive supporting vocals. The two have crafted a rich yet close acoustic sound that leans into dynamics, nuanced embellishment, and out-of-the box musical changes.

R&R is influenced by folk pioneers Watchouse, The Milk Carton Kids, Aoife O’Donovan, and Madison Cunningham- and hearkens back to the 70’s acoustic music of Bread and Joni Mitchell.

In Nov 2023, the duo released their debut EP “Trees and other Relatives” a collection of stories mined from Grace’s lineage. Produced by Alex, the project features upright bassist Eli Broxham, (Dallas Ugly/The Arcadian Wild) fiddler Bailey Warren, (Downriver Collective/The Arcadian Wild), and drummer Riley O’Donnell (Halleway/Hello Darling). Standout track “Around the Corner” has amassed over 35,000 streams across platforms.

River & Rail is recording their debut full-length album at the Sound Emporium, to be released Fall 2024 under Vere Music.
