After more than a decade of world-wide touring and three album releases, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson, otherwise known as the folk duo Hungrytown, have earned a reputation for the quality and authenticity of their songwriting.

Hall and Anderson met in New York City, where they had already been performing regularly, Hall as a jazz singer, and Anderson as a drummer for a variety of garage bands.
