An Evening with Couldn't Be Happiers


 For Couldn’t Be Happiers, this riot-folk/Americana duo out of Winston-Salem, NC enjoys every minute of their music-making journey, and it is contagious. 

Priding themselves on unique points of view and unexpected protagonists, their songs narrate fantastical worlds, untold histories, and vanishing folklore. But buried in each verse and chorus is their own underlying tale of two lawyers who, after failed marriages, found each other and are celebrating their second chance at music, love, and happiness.

The name says it all. Energetic and quirky, Couldn’t Be Happiers is a folk-rock /Americana duo that enjoys every moment of their second chance at happiness. Described by Doug Davis of Flytrap Studios as “Violent Femmes meets Johnny and June,” this married songwriting duo joyfully blends rock, pop, bluegrass, and folk into a sound that is uniquely their own. The CBH songbook includes stories about the obsessive drive of a Bigfoot hunter, the life cycle of a plastic bag, the end of the world from global warming, the untold perspective of the first woman hanged in North Carolina, and the acrobatic feats of strength performed by a Cajun burglar feeding his gambling habit.

But aside from the stories, what you’ll notice first is the voices — and in particular the beautiful homespun harmonies. Those voices will take you from church to holler to Opry and back again all in one song, thanks to the exhilarating power of Jodi’s vocals and the smoothly classic twang of Jordan’s.  With Jodi on drums, Jordan on guitar, and now backed by Michael Bennett on bass, Couldn’t Be Happiers roll out an incredible sound, a set of great original songs, and a live show that all but dares you not to enjoy yourself.
