Outerhope was formed in the summer of 2004, when siblings Michael and Micaela Benedicto started working on songs made sparingly with a guitar, an electric piano, and a lot of vocal harmony. They were inspired by stacks of old children’s records, lost tales and limericks, and old folk songs.
Their first studio recording was the album Strangely Paired, released independently in 2005 and re-released by Terno Recordings in 2006.
Outerhope’s second album, A Day for the Absent, was independently released in October 2009. –Last.fm
