What was the best part of watching NBC's premiere of "The Voice" last night? Being introduced to the  indie duo from Nashville, Elenowen. The husband and wife team instantly won my heart with their amazing vocal blend as soon as they started singing the Oscar-winning song, Falling Slowly.

So, I've been a little obsessed this morning, purchasing their music (here on iTunes) and watching more videos. (Their version of Falling Slowly is also available on iTunes.)

The album "Pulling Back the Veil" is a collection of eight original songs written by the newlyweds to chronicle their first year of marriage- a year filled with both hope and joy; but also the realities of the struggles and frustration they have experienced. Their beautiful harmonies and the raw honesty of their lyrics go straight to the heart, whether you are married or not.

The show was a hit, too. At first I thought it was going to be another American Idol copycat- but it had many different elements that made it fun and at times even emotional (like watching the parents and other loved ones react to the judges decisions from a back room.) NBC will air The Voice again this evening at 9:00 pm EST.
