Chicken Little is a post punk old time duo with accordion, acoustic guitar, and lots of harmonies. They write spirituals to be protest songs and protest songs to be broken hearted love ballads. Cuomo is a punk turned folksinger who shouts and croons three chord acoustic songs inspired as much by ..The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock.. as by ..The Blitzkrieg Bop… Emma is a classically trained choral singer & pianist raised in North Carolina on appalachian bluegrass and old time country with a holler to match her vibrato.
Originally from Brooklyn, where Cuomo spent years singing solo in the subways and running off on quixotic tours, the two became a duo in early 2008 when a friend found an accordion on the street and gave it to them. Traveling the south on their first tour together they discovered a burgeoning renaissance in acoustic and roots music and soon after moved to Tennessee to find a place for Brooklyn folk music in the new movement.
2010 saw them out on a nearly endless Going Nowhere Tour in support of their debut full length, No One, Never, Nothing…
