McGinty was born in Memphis, TN and raised near the Mississippi River in the “Bootheel” of Missouri. In the Fall of 2006 McGinty moved to New York City. While working at a vintage clothing store in the Soho district, Foster met Chelsea, a New Yorker, when she walked into the store looking for boots. Both knew instantly that they had just met someone that would alter their lives forever. Chelsea saw a musical partnership and Foster saw a life partner—both were right.

In 2011 the two were married and they began a musical journey that has taken them from the New York City streets to the historic mountain of Woodstock, NY, and then all the way down to Nashville, TN where they are currently based.
