Floyd grew up as the daughter of performing musicians in West Palm Beach, Florida, and landed her first record deal at 11 years old. While working as a waitress, she co-wrote the exquisite title track to Ashley Monroe’s Grammy-nominated The Blade. A native of Stillwater, Oklahoma, Martin played football for Baylor University while continuing to write songs. He received his first-ever cuts in Nashville on Garth Brooks’ No. 1 country albums Man Against Machine and Christmas Together (with Trisha Yearwood).

After being asked to write one song for the Burt Reynolds movie, Dog Years, Stranger Friends ultimately placed 12 songs and even appeared in the movie, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. A few days later, their original song, “Yet to Come,” won the award for Best Original Song at the Nashville Film Festival. The film and soundtrack album will be released in 2018. Read more about Stranger Friends.
