Beta Radio began writing what would become Year Of Love at the onset of 2020. The world shut down and though chaos and sadness ensued, Ben and Brent remained steadfast in their Wilmington studio. The duo broke from their traditional structure by releasing music as it came together rather than waiting to finish a full project. Tracks such as “Destined To Pretend“ were met by immediate applause, with Glide Magazine hailing “the duo’s shimmering folksy Americana,” noting, “(Beta Radio) craft a warm sonic backdrop from arpeggiated synth and strings as delicately plucked acoustic guitar upholds lilting vocals while meditating simultaneously on themes of hope and pain.” “It Doesn’t Really Feel Like Spring“ followed and received equivalent acclaim, with American Songwriter praising it as “tranquil and layered, opening with a meditative synth part around which Mabry and Holloman built the rest of the arrangement.”
"Year of Love wields the duo’s multi-instrumental talent to evoke serenity in the face of debilitating uncertainty. Orchestral experimentation with arpeggiated synth and strings combined with their thoughtfully crafted folk lyricism, emit an incandescent optimism to penetrate the shadowed nature of the 2020 experience.”

Fellow Camper is a folk duo featuring Lee Watson and Benjamin Roy. They sing in a close, two-part harmony style, drawing inspiration from Canadian folk pioneers who graced the stages of Toronto’s Yorkville music scene in the 60’s and 70’s. Combine that with a modern sensibility and you’ve got Fellow Camper. For the better part of a decade, Lee wrote and performed as a founding member of Vancouver's critically acclaimed The Breakmen.
