Wendlo is the Atlanta-based, folk-pop duo of Jacob & Chelsea Hamilton.
Jacob and Chelsea have been playing together since they started in Chelsea’s basement in her hometown of Anchorage, Alaska in 2013. Since then, the two have spanned the sonic breadth of the alternative and singer-songwriter genres. Their harmonies and dynamics are reminiscent of The Civil Wars, with pop undertones. Their beautiful re-creations of classics both new and old captivate listeners wherever they are heard. In an over-saturated landscape of songwriting duos, Wendlo’s captivating performance and exceptional creativity set them apart. Wendlo introduce their personal brand of folk-pop with honest arrangements, emotive melodies, and intimate harmonies—presented with the sincerity of trusted friends.
The duo released their latest single, Downtown, on June 21, 2019.
