They Won’t Win is an acoustic folk-rock duo consisting of singer-songwriters Danny M. Cohen and Greg Lanier, and featuring keyboardist Ben Walter and cellist Chai Wolfman. Their songs—inspired by their British and American roots and experiences as gay musicians—blend intricate harmonies, thoughtful lyrics, and soaring melodies.

An old soul from the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, twenty-year-old Trae Sheehan has been writing songs and performing since the age of ten. A lover of imagery and storytelling through lyrics based on old stories and poems, he never shies away from the hard stuff, instead setting it out in the open to be heard and discussed. Pulling inspiration from the country/rock sound of The Eagles, the folk roots of Bob Dylan, and the swift melodies of John Denver, his songs are written from a place of honesty with an understanding of people and culture gained through his travels and performances. With a new record and his guitar in hand there’s no telling how far he’ll go.
