Wendlo is the husband-and-wife duo of Jacob & Chelsea Hamilton.
Jacob & Chelsea met in 2011, when Jacob moved to Chelsea's hometown of Anchorage, Alaska. Having always had a passion for music, they started performing covers at open mics together whenever they could. Over time the two became songwriting partners and started playing more original music, inspired by a tumultuous season that saw the band return to Atlanta after Chelsea spent 5 months in Australia. Jacob proposed to Chelsea in October 2015 at their first official show. The music they played that night became the inspiration and the playlist for their eponymously-named Engagement Party EP.
Wendlo released their original debut EP, Engagement Party, on June 23, 2017, a Christmas EP entitled Wendlo's First Christmas on November 10, 2017, and are currently in production for a full-length release later in 2018.
