Artist Info: -ness is a songwriting and production duo formed by Ethan Peck and Jesse Weisberg. In 2013, Ethan, who had long been writing songs, heard Jesse’s singing voice while playing Rock Band on PlayStation and convinced him to take up the guitar and start singing seriously. With little prior music experience aside from the trumpet, Jesse taught himself guitar and began writing songs in a matter of months.

By then, Jesse and Ethan started playing together, recording countless voice memos of live sessions until they realized that there was a natural songwriting dynamic worth pursuing. The two began experimenting in Ethan’s basement on Logic with a USB microphone and a broken mandolin that Ethan haggled from a beach peddler– the product was Behind the Couch. Excited by the creative process of writing, recording, and producing, Jesse and Ethan continued to write more songs and develop their sound and style.
