CRITIC’S PICK
Young Heirlooms (Cincinnati)
Indie Folk/Pop


The dichotomy of Young Heirlooms is right there in the name: by its nature, an heirloom doesn’t achieve that status until it’s passed down through the generations. A young heirloom is an impossibility, and yet Kelly Fine and Chris Robinson have invested their gorgeously harmonic duo with those impossible qualities — a timelessness of bygone musical eras, lyrical themes and appropriately antique instrumentation combined with an absolutely contemporary viewpoint. Young Heirlooms’ 2013 self-titled debut showcased their melodic gifts to perfection, and its songs burst into fireworks of heat and beauty in a live setting.
