The Wellspring is an indie folk-pop duo from NY, now based in LA, whose music has been described as a “byproduct of the Troubadour era that breathed life into Carole King and James Taylor, soft-speaking musicians who carry big sticks.”
Talia Osteen and Dov Rosenblatt met in New York in 2009 when Dov, then lead singer/songwriter of local band ‘Fools For April’, met with Talia, then VP at a film production company, about placing his music in their films. Talia fell in love with Dov’s music, and Dov discovered that Talia had sung in a band for years prior to her career in film. Months later, mutual fans of each other, the two decided to take a stab at writing together.
Talia sent Dov a torrent of poems. It was these poems that sparked him to write music fervently into the wee hours of morning. It was this music that would inspire her to sing again. Together, they discovered a wellspring of music. Talia quit her job and the pair spent all their free time writing and recording together in Dov’s home studio.
Within their first year together as a duo, Talia & Dov landed themselves a 40 city tour across North America opening for Pete Yorn & Ben Kweller to promote their debut self-titled EP, which was dubbed the #1 “Indie Album of the Year” by Examiner.com
Their music has been featured on FOX’s hit TV series HOUSE, MD & ABC’s COUGAR TOWN, amongst other shows.
Their heavy hooks and feather-light harmonies also paved their way to scoring all original music for the upcoming feature film comedy, COFFEE TOWN, written and directed by Brad Copeland (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT). Most exciting is the band’s forthcoming full-length record, THE GIRL WHO CRIED SHEEP, produced by Grammy-nominated, platinum record producer Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos). The band released 2 singles from the LP when they performed at SXSW 2013.
