The pop punk duo known as Two Years Later is setting aside the electric guitar and powerful drums for a free and intimate acoustic show at 8 pm on Saturday, September 13 at Coffee Amici, a coffee shop in the heart of Findlay, Ohio that has a reputation as a mecca for both new and seasoned performers alike.

University of Findlay alum and vocalist of Two Years Later, Jamie Rogers, cut her teeth as a performer on the Amici stage during the coffee shop’s weekly open mic nights throughout her time at the University and has made appearances as a solo musician on a few Saturday nights since graduating in 2013. Now, with their first EP about to release, Rogers and drummer Zak Toth are bringing their powerful and moving music to the Amici stage in a stripped down version of their fiery pop punk show.

Toth will lay down a solid percussive foundation on his cajon, an acoustic drum box that is gentler than a full drum set, to support Rogers’ powerful vocals and rhythmic acoustic guitar. After playing over 20 full rock shows throughout Columbus, Two Years Later hopes to share an intimate and invigorating performance of their original music coupled with reflective stories of how the songs came to be .
Two Years Later will be releasing their EP, #Road2Fame, on September 21 in Columbus, Ohio but will be releasing the tracks in succession over the five weeks leading up to the release date via their social media for streaming. To learn more about the duo and join their 1,500+ fans connect with them via their social media platforms including: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Soundcloud and Reverbnation.

Jamie and Zak met in 2011 at an open mic and two years passed before they saw each other again, reuniting through a mutual friend in 2013. They bonded over their shared love for making music and decided to put their talents to good use. In 2014 they put their serious business faces on and started recording their EP and putting together their band: Two Years Later. They’ve evolved into a captivating duo that engages their fans with their percussive pop rock and catchy pop melodies. Jamie’s lyrics bring a hypnotic depth to the invigorating rhythms that Zak lays down. Their music is thought provoking, infectious, and fun for loyal fans and first time listeners alike.
