The core songwriting duo behind Whippoorwill met at the 2013 South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Alysia Kraft and Staci Foster began sending each other songs and last year made their debut album "Good To Be Around." The Fort Collins folk band expanded to a trio and shared the stage with acts like Lydia Loveless and Old Crow Medicine Show.
