Hailed as “Wild Open Harmony Folk Music”, The Nautical Theme has been captivating audiences with cinematic melodies since 2017. Plunging the depths of emotion these two voices soar and dive in such a way that upon their first pairing it was clear that something contagiously haunting was about to make waves.

Tesia Mallory and Matt Shetler set out to create their second album was recorded at Ready Shet Go Studio, they completed ten new songs. To expand the concept of the album title, Lows and Highs, Mallory and Shetler made a deliberate choice to build out the arrangements for half of the songs, which included adding live drums to several of the tracks. The drums were recorded by long time friend, previous musical collaborator, and supporter of the band, Justin Crim and were tracked by Micah Carli at his Popside Recording studio. Carli was once again tapped by the band to mix the album. John Naclerio (American Authors, My Chemical Romance, Brand New) lent his talents to master Lows and Highs.
