MINTURN — After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June 2012, husband and wife indie folk-rock duo You Knew Me When set plans to tour the nation for a full year — but they never stopped.

Since that time, they have been serving up their craft-brewed compositions, a term coined from their more than 125 craft brewery performances, coast to coast throughout the United States and into Canada. Continuing to tour in support of their 2015 album “We Found Roads” and their recently released EP “The Only You EP,” You Knew Me When will perform as part of the Minturn Concert Series today at Little Beach Park.

Finding new paths together

Outfitted with an array of instruments, You Knew Me When is a duo that presents a full band sound. While blending their vocals, Karisa Hoover, who previously served as a tenured Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele, glockenspiel and percussive elements, as Cie Hoover, who spent several years as the global events manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and other rhythmic nuances.

The cumulative result is a musical style and live show that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a pop-rock mentality.

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

You Knew Me When’s latest releases, “The Only You EP” and “We Found Roads,” showcase the musical progression of the duo and the melding of Karisa and Cie’s musical styles. At times upbeat and folksy, at times brooding and introspective, the albums are reflections of mile markers and moments derived from giving up everything and finding new paths together.
