The Comforters - Pia and Jason Robbins - live in Eugene, Oregon with their dog, Walrus. The husband/wife duo write warm and inviting songs that evoke the rich story telling and pop sensibilities of artists like Aimee Mann and The Cowboy Junkies.
The Comforters's songwriting atmosphere: “A piano, an acoustic guitar, and lots of trees.” “Yeah, there's definitely something about the pacific northwest,” says Jason, “that really lends itself to creativity …it's a very liberating setting.”
“We worked hard on crafting a record that has a unified sound”, says Jason, “even if we wander around stylistically. With Pia – you know, she has such a beautiful voice that communicates so much, that it's just painting around that with sounds and textures.” The irony is that, while on the surface there is an air of tranquility and endless calm to the album, the songs reveal an unsettling dead-calm that is the backdrop to affairs, depression, heartbreak, alienation and yes, some negative things as well.
The Comforters have quickly found ears tuned to the bittersweet in life. Their songs are receiving airplay on several radio programs across the U.S and in Europe.
They are currently back in the studio this fall recording the new album.
