Biography

Homesick Elephant is an indie-folk duo whose heart-wrenching harmonies, old-time instrumentation and homespun sincerity make you feel like you’re a character in a Wes Anderson Film. Sara and Kevin met in September of 2003 and immediately began playing music together. Their main projects have been Cheese on Bread and the Nace Family. They formed Homesick Elephant in the Spring of 2006 before leaving their home in Philadelphia to move out west to Los Angeles. In their little house in Silverlake, they sing together nightly after dinner while cleaning the kitchen and updating their Last.fm page…

“Homesick Elephant is the L.A.-based duo of Kevin Kelly and Sara Fitzsimmons (formerly of Cheese On Bread). They find inspiration for their hyperkinetically maudlin ditties in Wes Anderson’s films and soundtracks, and those who appreciate the colliding emotions, precious British Invasion nuggets and unsettling pauses which are the hallmarks of those features will likely dig their sound.” - Connect Savannah

“Upon first listen, you may think of the band as Simon & Garfunkel meets Mitch & Mickey, but the band strives to be more of a Wes Anderson - Loretta Lynn combo. What sets Homesick Elephant apart is its sincerity. Songs like Margaret Thatcher Appleby and Shoestring Love Affair are sure to grab your attention and make your heart weep.” - www.CampusPhilly.com
