The Lark and the Loon
Jeff Rolfzen and Rocky Steen-Rolfzen
The Lark and the Loon are a songwriting duo consisting of husband/wife team Jeff Rolfzen and Rocky Steen-Rolfzen. The two bring their distinct writing styles together in what they call an exploration in the etymology of American music. They take inspiration from prewar blues and jazz, Irish dance music, Sea shanties, and traditional American music as well. Named for the state birds of their respective home states of Montana and Minnesota the two often draw inspiration from thie dual upbringing in urban and rural life. Their debut album "Songbirds and Fog" was recorded in their cabin home in the Ozarks after a period of heavy isolation and was met with critical acclaim. Earning Folk DJ radio chart placement, an award winning music video, and being included on several "best of" lists from places like Sundilla Radio Hour, Music You Can't Hear on the Radio, and others. Heralded for their harmonies, duets, and musicianship the two have enjoyed touring extensively both in the United States and abroad.In the Fall of 2017 the two performed their first international tour in Ireland coupled with an eastern United States tour. Early 2018 found them selected to perform at NAMM as Official Showcase Artists to the exclusive conference in Anaheim CA. When not on the road they enjoy the comfort of their Ozark home where they garden in the rocky soil, hike the scenic hills, and soak in the tranquility before their next venture.
