The duo subsequently launched ECHOES to tremendous popular and celebrity support.
Meanwhile, Kayce has been a successful songwriter, performer, producer and arranger of original songs since graduating from the University of Virginia.

The daughter of acclaimed singer/songwriter Lewis McGehee, Kayce previously released ECHOES and is working on her next album.
During the winter of 2019, JG began writing music about isolation. Little did he know, the COVID pandemic was coming a few months later and the rest of the world would understand isolation in a way never experienced before in our lifetime. During Spring 2020, JG shared his songs with Kayce and the two formed the duo of WINTER PLANS.
Special guest appearances by Symbol Sweeney (Viola) and Trevor Exter (Cello). Additional arrangement by Tim Brennan. “Ghosts” was written in Richmond, Virginia and Los Angeles, California, and recorded (carefully) at 4th Street Recording in Los Angeles, California during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ghosts was produced by Tim Brennan of Gold Sky Music, Nashville, Tennessee, and mastered by Alex McCollough at True East Mastering in Nashville.
