Soon after meeting in their home state of Oregon, Josh Schroeder and Meredith Adelaide discovered that they share common ideas about music, art, life, and their love of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. This connection fostered a creative match that quickly evolved into a musical project as Josh and Mer. Their debut album, Planet Music, was recorded with producer Jason Carter (Frank Black, Pete Yorn, Art Brut) and evokes a dreamy, experimental indie rock sound. The Portland duo furthered their artistic vision by filming and photographing elements of their collaborative process. “We each bring something to the table that we otherwise couldn’t do alone, and I think that’s why it works,” says Josh, while Meredith adds, “We’re always trying to one-up each other with concepts, visuals, and sounds.
The duo released their full-length album, “Planet Music” on Oct. 4th 2011. It is available through their website, iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, and Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon. Josh and Mer recently composed the network theme song for the BBC Kids Channel in Canada and they lent their voices, instrumental talents, and production style to the recording of the theme song.
