Style: Pleasing acoustic pop duets; compare to Taylor Swift, Indigo Girls

Top tracks: "Heart of Stone," "Skinny Jeans," "Life and Breath and Everything"

Jill Pickering and Kate Rapier didn't know each other when each decided to spend a semester at the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities' Contemporary Music Center in Martha's Vineyard (now in Nashville). They became friends, formed a duet, started writing songs, and eventually became Kelly Clarkson's back-up singers. On this their fourth CD, Pickering and Rapier, whose pleasant voices blend seamlessly, sing of love and love lost, mostly of the romantic kind. But album closer "Life and Breath and Everything" is of love divine: "There is a darkness that finds me / On the brightest of days / So I run to the water to drown my own soul / Then you find me / And that's where I learn to sing / You give me life and breath and everything."
