Biography Wikipedia

Wikipedia:

Dungeonesse is an American collaboration between songwriter and producer Jon Ehrens (White Life, Art Department), and singer Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak, Flock of Dimes) out of Baltimore, Maryland. The project was born through Ehrens' and Wasner's mutual love for Top 40 and R&B and the mechanics behind a hit song. The pair began creating songs long-distance between Los Angeles and wherever Wasner was touring. The group signed to the independent record label Secretly Canadian in 2012, and since have released one single, "Drive You Crazy" b/w "Private Party." Their self-titled debut album was released by Secretly Canadian on May 14, 2013.

According to Ehrens and Wasner, the music is equally focused on sonic choices and lyrics. The songs have been heavily influenced by the music of the 1990s, as both members of the duo call themselves "90's children."Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page, but the references will not show without a {{reflist}} template (see the help page).

Interview: Dungeonesse

By Barry Walters, Contributor

Jenn Wasner is the Leslie Knope of pop. Not only does the Wye Oak frontwoman's speaking voice resemble that of Amy Poehler's beloved Parks and Recreation character, but she also has a similar earnest thoroughness about her: Just about every point in her account of how she made the transformation from indie-rock singer to dance-pop siren in Dungeonesse — her new project with fellow multi-instrumentalist Jon Ehrens of the band White Life — needed to… more »
