And the Giraffe is the "dream-folk" project of best friends, Josh Morris and Nick Roberts. The band started when the two met during an orientation meeting for university in Gainesville, FL and decided to get together to jam when school finally started. Originally, And the Giraffe played acoustic folk songs and played a few different shows in the area while they still lived near each other. In the spring of 2011, Josh moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a different direction academically and the two were forced to collaborate via Dropbox. Although many ideas were developed over the Internet, it wasn't until Josh moved back to Gainesville for the summer of 2011 that the duo really got into the swing of things. They recorded their first EP in Nick's apartment bedroom. While Josh has since moved back to Nashville, the duo are planning to embark on a tour within the coming year and work on even more music.
