Artist bio

Purr began late-summer of 2016 as the side-project of two young New Yorkers, Eliza Callahan and Jack Staffen, who have been songwriting partners since childhood. Most recently, the duo gained critical cult acclaim playing under their own names, Jack and Eliza, which garnered recognition from the likes of Interview Magazine, The New Yorker and The New York Times. During the Purr demoing process, which took place in Callahans kitchen, they brought Sam Glick, a friend of Callahans from Columbia University on board to play bass. Glick then introduced the group to Max Freedberg, the drummer from Glicks Boston-based band, Plums.
