Chalet Shalom is an indie/folk duo comprised of Vincent Colbert and Ethan Daum. The two met in 2010 while living in the same apartment complex in Austin, Texas. They wrote the song "Courage" (released in 2011 on their debut EP "Light") during their first jam session, and quickly realized how closely their background, musical influences, and playing style aligned. Vince and Ethan have been influenced by many of the same artists, including Elliott Smith, Joseph Arthur, Nick Drake, Blind Pilot, The Fleet Foxes, Sufjan Stevens, and Bon Iver. The two considered themselves a band within just a week of writing and recording songs in Ethan's home studio.

Chalet Shalom is all about creative and alternative folk music. They primarily write on acoustic guitar, but then spend a lot of time finding the perfect instrument, sound, or harmony to make each song come alive. Vince, Chalet Shalom's primary songwriter, brings new ideas to the table, then, with the help of Ethan, those ideas are molded and shaped into complete songs. Ethan, a multi-instrumentalist, has an array of instruments to choose from including banjo, ukulele, cello, cajon, and mountain dulcimer. All of these sounds appear at some point on their debut full-length album "Like Shadows Under The Sun," which released on iTunes and other digital distribution sites on 1/28/13.
