You Knew Me When is an acoustic folk rock duo, formed in Blacksburg, VA who have toured the entirety of the US, bringing their good vibes and lively music to each and every venue they visit!
You Knew Me When, a phrase we can all relate to, and one that speaks to the devotedness of the Music City based duo to their art, their history, and their continued musical progression. After uprooting from their Nashville home and full-time jobs in June of 2012, You Knew Me When set plans to tour the nation for a full year, however they never stopped. Since that time they have continued to tour fulltime, playing shows coast to coast throughout the USA and into Canada, and released their debut studio album “You, Me, and the Rest of the World”.
The music of You Knew Me When parades between a fusion of progressive indie-rock and folk compositions all infused with a myriad of pulsing and stirring beats. WRNC Radio stated, ““There is such a natural talent to You Know Me When and for the first time in quite awhile it may be a sound that is truly unique, or at least different in these musical times.” While blending their vocals, Karisa, who previously served as a Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele, and glockenspiel, as Cie, who spent several years as the Global Events Production Manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a pop/rock mentality.
Although music was the calling that brought them together in Nashville, Tennessee, it took the husband and wife duo You Knew Me When nearly a decade to create music together as a united pair. Stemming from the separate musical backgrounds of Cie Hoover, who predominantly resided within the hard-rock scene, and Karisa Hoover, who could be found more often in vocal seminars and music education workshops, the two began writing music together in mid 2009. It was from that point on that the two began melding their life partnership into the musical partnership known as You Knew Me When.
