“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” This phrase comes to mind when thinking of Athens-based band Family and Friends. 7 people with their own individual talents, who when combined, create magic that is so much more than just the sum of its parts. Sure, when you combine all of this talent, you get something amazing – but its the way they come together, the way that they balance each other and feed off of each other, that makes this band so special. After they performed for our Backyard Session, we hung out with Family and Friends well into the night, and captured more footage of them telling their story. The passion that they feel for what they do is contagious, and inspiring – watch for yourselves.
