Meet The Downs
The Downs are a duo from Decatur, GA who combat despair with humor, hooks, and harmonies.
"Atlanta-born musician Jenn Downs is a thoughtful storyteller with a punk rock sensibility, who breaks your heart and makes you laugh in equal measure. Along with her band mate and partner Koby Downs, they are a bold duo, making acoustic Americana indie rock that borrows from the best of that genre and bleeds raw, original folk rock power."
- Unsweetened Magazine
Jenn and Koby been married for a decade and have been writing songs together for nearly as long in both The Downs and their rowdy rock band, Superpill. The duo is inspired by indie music shops, small guitars, and old books about birds and carpentry.
Their Boston Terrier rescues, Dickie and Waylon, wanted to be included in this bio since they are featured on the cover of The Downs EP “I Can Hear You Sing Along”. But frankly their musical contributions are fairly limited.

I Can Hear You Sing Along EP Release Celebration
It's been a busy year and a long time coming, but we'd like to stop and breathe and celebrate that we recorded our first EP together as The Downs.
We'll be playing our songs and doing a Q&A at the end of a showcase for students of Bucky Motter (who has taught us both on guitar, voice, songwriting, and life).
December 20, 2018 7pm @ Java Monkey
Let's have some coffee and holidays with each other on a Thursday night before Christmas. We'll sing our holiday favorites about dogs, some songs we just love singing, and play our original songs, too.
