Fort Defiance is a high-energy, husband & wife duo who create a larger than life sound full of timeless harmonies, comedic life stories, and a variety of homemade instruments. Don’t miss this one!
What happens when two people who swore not to date each other start a band together?
They get married, move into a van, and hit the road with their dog and newborn kitten, of course!
After meeting in a honkey-tonk (as all good Christian couples do), Jordan Eastman and Laurel lane did just that; forming Fort Defiance in attempt to branch out their solo careers, the pair began performing on street corners and dive bar stages around the south east and their native Nashville, TN.
Within a year, the two were married and had developed such chemistry that requests for shows came pouring in.
Seizing the moment, they quit their day jobs, moved into the van, and began touring relentlessly - playing over 250 shows, in 46 states the first year - without the help of management or outside booking agents - and they haven't slowed down since!
Never wanting to be seen as an “acoustic-duo” or anything less than a complete band, Fort Defiance shattered the singer/songwriter mold, offsetting their guitar and banjo dynamic with quirky instrumentation, booming stomp boxes, and pouring their hearts into numerous instruments at once; creating what The Listening Room (Mobile, AL) described as “an incredible, unbelievably, enormously-huge sound for two people.”
Whether it’s a heartfelt song about battling cancer that’s played on a tiny, pink piano, or an up-beat banjo tune about friends bonding over love for a wildly specific regional sausage, Fort Defiance shows passion and conviction with every line.
Their timeless harmonies, unparalleled stage performances, and endearing marital chemistry leaves crowds enthralled and critics calling them “breathtakingly seductive” (That Music Magazine – Philadelphia, PA), “an absolute MUST SEE band” (I Love KC Music - Kansas City, MO), and “as lyrically brilliant as Dylan, as beautifully toe-tapping as the Civil Wars, and as brazenly confident as Johnny and June!” (The Green Room - Flagstaff, AZ). Fort Defiance is a show you don’t want to miss!
