The Double Downbeats is the Illinois-based husband and wife team of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Lloyd Evans and vocalist Summar Evans. They began singing together at churches, weddings and living rooms. Tight harmonies and introspective songwriting are the cornerstone of the duo. A group of friends were recruited to record the 2008 EP "Americana Hit Kit". In 2010, they released the full-length album "Heart and Mind Half Gone". They are inspired by bands like Wilco and Over the Rhine.
