"There's a rich history in rock of exes making beautiful music
together. But what makes TeamMate's story particularly
compelling is how insurmountable drummer Dani Buncher and
singer-keyboardist Scott Simons' break up seemed. One day
they were daydreaming about growing old together, and the
next, Dani came out to her boyfriend. The two had been dating
for a full decade.

In the four years since that gutting split, an extraordinary
connection and a mutual love of music have helped them dismantle, then rebuild, their relationship. "If we couldn't be
partners," explains Scott, "we were still going to be teammates." Getting there took work, as chronicled in their self-produced debut album (out in 2012 on Rostrum Records),
an indie-pop memoir that charts the times and tides of their

TeamMate's unofficial motto: "Breaking up is hard to do.""
Jake H. met Casey a few hours after she was born. He was disappointed she was a girl and cried. Eighteen years later, he got over it, and they started a band. A few years after that, they suckered another kid named Jake into playing bass. After shooting down Casey's idea to name the band "Casey and the Jakes," they became Donora.

Jake H. plays the drums, triggers samples from his octapad, and sings backup. Casey sings and tries very hard to remember the right guitar chords to play. Jake C. plays bass and reminds Casey which key each song starts in. Together they play melodic, dance-worthy, garage pop.
