Can’t get enough of these fellas lately:
Robin Pecknold and Skye Skjelset both attended Lake Washington High School in Kirkland, a suburb of Seattle, and soon became close friends. Pecknold and Skjelset bonded over a mutual appreciation of Bob Dylan and Neil Young and began making music together. Their parents influenced their musical tastes early on Ã¢â‚¬â€ Skjelset’s mother was a keen listener of both Bob Dylan and Hank Williams while Pecknold’s father was a member of The Fathoms, a local 1960s soul group. The two were interested in the achievements of Dylan and Brian Wilson and realized the importance of practicing music from a young age.
