Creating heartfelt melodies that probe deep subjects with a touch of vulnerability and a reminder of the promise of positivity is a tonic in these challenging times. 7000Apart – Jon Kresin and Amelie Eiding – is a band with a love story right out of a movie! In 2012, Amelie journeyed from Stockholm, Sweeden to attend high school in Green Bay, Wisconsin. And in music theory class, they met, became friends and overtime that friendship grew into a love that transcended the 7,000 kilometer distance when Amelie returned home.
After three years of managing a long distance relationship, Jon and Amelie married in Sweden and then returned to the United States. In 2019, they released their first record We Are More. Work on their second album, Feel Your Feelings, is already underway with Nashville-based songwriter and producer FEMKE.
