The St. John's are Jordan Meredith and Louis Johnson, a singing songwriting duo who met in Florida, moved to New York for a while, changed their name from Augustine and now reside in Nashville. Their music, a mix of frisky acoustic pop and Americana-shaded folk, features gorgeously entwined vocal harmonies that have drawn comparisons to everyone' favorite Nashville breakout benchmark, The Civil Wars. Meredith and Johnson are currently writing songs and assembling musicians for their 2013 debut album but gave us a peak of what might be in store with a new four-song Live Sessions EP. Though they've toured over the past few years as Augustine, they'll make their debut as The St. John's tomorrow night at The Basement in Nashville as part of a lineup put together by the good folks at Communion, the new music collective co-founded by Ben Lovett of Mumford and Sons.
