Betty and the Boy originally started as a modest duo in the small northwest Montana town of Kalispell when Jaeger and Harvey met over 4 years ago.  Relocating to Eugene shortly thereafter, they combine their minimalist approach to their instrument-rich sound.  A variety of sounds can be heard in their original compositions including mandolin, harmonica and violin. While most of their material is centered around love and loss, Jaeger’s voice is hauntingly pristine, similar to Brandi Carlile’s style. Recently tying first place in a local talent competition for their unique sound in their song Moth to a Light.  Playing such regional music festivals recently as, the Sisters Folk Festival, there is poetry in their songs with a dash of grit ” honing ragged emotion into their artful and spunky new tunes.”
