Veazy and Fowler make up this two person musical team which they formed after doing many shows with their band, Devil’s Due. “We are excited about our duo,” exclaimed Veazy, “We’d really like to get the duo going!”

Veazy and Fowler have not only been performing together regularly, they met and fell in love over a shared interest in music and have been together happily for the last five years. “It really is a destiny thing,” Veazy noted. Veazy mentioned that upon meeting Fowler, she realized she had found the person she was meant to be with. “Some of our songs are about our special relationship,” she added.

When asked what inspired them to branch off as a duo, the two expressed that its much easier to book a duo which allows them to perform at more places. They also shared how much they love working together. “We both love music so much. We recently got to play at Cottonwood and will be playing for Second Saturday,” said Veazy.

When the duo isn’t performing, they also work sound and lights for a variety of different shows. They have been to several festivals recently, including the Mockingbird Festival in Leland and the Catfish Festival in Belzoni, where they mentioned how wonderful it was to work with Emily Tillman Donovan. Donovan, who was in charge of the Catfish Festival, works with V105.5.

“We really enjoy doing the production stuff,” Fowler started, “we get to do cool events. We did the sound and lights for an energy healing show and it was great.” They do their production work with Studio 61 and have been able to participate in some big events like recording and working production for the Black Keys which aired on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The Mockingbird Festival they worked featured around a dozen Grammy winning songwriters from Nashville. It was all put together by Steve Azar, who the duo do production for often. They also worked for Big Head Todd and the Monsters last October.

The couple is no stranger to music and performance. They are very excited to perform together for the city of Vicksburg this Friday. Their song list includes songs by The Beatles, REM, Fleetwood Mac, Brandi Carlile, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Nat King Cole, Bonnie Raitt, Sarah Bareilles, and Lady Gaga.

Veazy closed with, “it’s wonderful that we get to do music together! We really enjoyed talking to you!” The duo plans to do more work with their band in the future but intends to focus their energy on their musical partnership at this time. They are looking forward to this afternoon event.
