There is a vocal synergy that exists between Navid Eliot and Jen Borst, the two core members of the Washington-based folk group Planes on Paper. They each have clear, unique voices, but when combined, a special kind of musical beauty emerges. During live performances, they often combine their own intricate harmonies and acoustic guitar with the abilities of some of their most musical friends, adding percussion and pedal steel to the fold.
Their latest EP, The Ruins, was released in January 2015 and received excellent reviews and a great deal of attention throughout the Pacific Northwest. They’ve been touring steadily behind the record, playing shows up and down the both the east and west coasts. They’re currently hard at work on their first full length album.
