Milo & Rachel Deering
Milo & Rachel Deering have been making music together for about as long as they have been married - 30 years in 2019. The duo has performed and recorded their homespun blend of folk, bluegrass & western-swing with their Acoustic Kitchen band, showcasing Rachel’s heartfelt songwriting and Milo’s mastery of stringed instruments and inventive and whimsical arrangements. Performing with their band, Ghostown, in the 90s, the couple carved a niche in the Texas music scene, playing at the renowned South by Southwest Music Conference showcase in Austin, TX and at the Kerrville Folk Festival where Rachel was a New-Folk Finalist.
Milo has also written and played on hundreds of commercial jingles and library tracks that have been featured in a myriad of broadcast television programs, radio spots and motion pictures including the famous Motel 6 "We'll Leave the Light on For You" campaign with Tom Bodett. He has also recorded and performed with a multitude of bands and artists, including The Eagles, Don Henley, James Taylor, LeAnn Rimes, Jack Ingram, Aaron Watson, Zane Williams, Asleep at the Wheel, Charlie Pride and hundreds more.
Currently Milo plays with the legendary bluegrass band Hickory HIll and with the many artists who perform at the Acoustic Kitchen Live! concert series. Most of the time, though, Milo is in the studio composing, arranging and recording scores of music for songwriters and myriads of musical projects.
Scarlett started playing the violin at the ripe old age of three and graduated about 20 years later from Berklee College of Music.

At the beginning of 2018, Scarlett made the move back to her hometown of Dallas, TX to co-manage a recording studio with her illustrious musician father, Milo Deering. She began touring with the Eagles in 2018, and continues to play shows with them on occasion. Scarlett also toured playing fiddle for Texas Country artist, Zane Williams. She currently performs with a wide array of artists in the Dallas, TX area, provides strings for weddings and events, co-manages Acoustic Kitchen Recording Studio, while also writing and performing her own original music.
