Phil and Ivy Merrell met in 2007 when their respective bands were booked to play shows together in their hometown of Boise, Idaho. They quickly discovered a shared love of overly sentimental music and formed their own band in 2008 called Dark Swallows. Over the past 15 years, they have worked together writing and recording music in a variety of projects. They share a home in Boise where Ivy plays with her besties in The French Tips and Phil with his besties in Wet Pet.
