The Wellspring is an indie folk-pop duo, now based in LA, whose music has been described as a “byproduct of the Troubadour era that breathed life into Carole King and James Taylor, soft-speaking musicians who carry big sticks.”
The duo, Talia Osteen & Dov Rosenblatt, toured North America opening for Pete Yorn and Ben Kweller to promote their debut EP in 2011, which was dubbed the #1 “Indie Album of the Year” by Examiner.com
Talia and Dov met in New York in 2009 when Dov, then lead singer/songwriter of local band ‘Fools For April’, met with Talia, then VP at a film production company, about placing his music in their films. Talia fell in love with Dov’s music, and Dov discovered that Talia had sung in a band for years prior to her career in film. Months later, mutual fans of each other, the two decided to take a stab at writing together.
Talia sent Dov a torrent of poems. It was these poems that sparked him to write music fervently into the wee hours of morning. It was this music that would inspire her to sing again. Together, they discovered a wellspring of music. Talia quit her job and the pair spent all their free time writing and recording together in Dov’s home studio.
Since then, the prolific pair has independently released two EP’s, 3 singles - including their cover of Big Star’s ‘Ballad of El Goodo’ which was prominently featured on Fox’s hit show ‘HOUSE MD.’ - and their debut LP, The Girl Who Cried Sheep, produced by Grammy-nominated, platinum record producer Eric Rosse (Sara Bareilles, Tori Amos). Their songs have been featured on television shows including ABC’s COUGAR TOWN and Netflix’s ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK.
Their catchy hooks and effortless harmonies have won them fans from all over the world and also paved their way to scoring all original music for the feature film, COFFEE TOWN, written and directed by Brad Copeland (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT), which can be seen on HBO in August 2014.
