Caroline Shumate and Greg Graves are The Queen and King.

The pair, who met as teenagers in their hometown of Houston, have been writing and performing together since the summer after graduating high school. Both are multi-instrumentalists; Caroline has a background in drums and guitar, and Greg in guitar and bass. They toured together as members of Tyler Ward's backing band in the summer of 2014, playing shows across Canada, The United States, and Europe. It was upon returning from that tour that the duo decided to start their own group, and The Queen and King was born.

Soon after forming The Queen and King, the pair started releasing original covers of popular Billboard hits, helping them to blossom into their growing creative roles, while also establishing a relationship with their fans. Since then, The Queen and King's covers have accumulated over 50+ million streams on Spotify. The duo have just signed with Instrumental, a boutique label out of London, England.
