Imagine a child of the 80s/90s underground scene falling in with a 70s prog, classically-trained cellist. What do ya get? A refreshing and often unexpected sound. The Two’s are hitting the road this summer with their new release Push On.
The Two’s new EP release Push On showcases the duo’s musical styles covering rock, roots, bluegrass, and classical. The writing and arrangements intentionally work the interplay between the vocal and the cello supported by a rhythmic foundation of guitar and percussion. Recorded in New Orleans by Adam Keil, the five-track EP was mixed by Ben Lorio and Grammy winner Sylvia Massy. The Two’s have opened for such acts as rock legend Heart, international pop Star Zucchero, Dave Matthew’s side man Tim Reynolds, and have placed music on the Emmy award-winning show “Nip/Tuck.”

About Suki Kuehn
Cellist Suki Kuehn was made in Japan (a Navy brat). Growing up he was exposed by his parents to every kind of classical and theatrical music. Although he became an nuclear engineer, Suki has studied cello “on the side” from the fifth grade on. He has lived throughout the US, finally settling in New Orleans after a stint driving subs for the Navy. He plays either an old French cello that for who-knows-how-long lived in a barn south of Paris, or a battered German cello bought from an ancient woman in a dark French Quarter alley. Using a few tasteful effects, Suki weaves texture and force into every song, hinting at rock, folk, jazz, and classical styles.
