Jessica Maros and Tyler James formed Escondido and recorded their February 2013 debut album, "The Ghost of Escondido," in a single, live session.

Escondido's country-pop ballads are influenced by Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac and seem inspired by miles of desert landscape, spiked with the red flame of a setting sun. The music's emotional center concerns itself with love lost against a backdrop of the natural West.

Prior to Escondido, James was a member of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Maros was a fashion designer. In Escondido's case, success brings success as their album is receiving acclaim, some essay writer from unlikely sources like filmmaker David Lynch, who compared the song "Black Roses" to the sound of Mazzy Star.

For this Live at KDHX session, Escondido performed three songs from their debut record. Perfect for the current season, "Cold October" merges the loss of a relationship with the decay of the waning year. "Radio Queen" offers flares of trumpet and a sultry observational modality, while "Black Roses" hums with heart-addling guitar jangle, pedal steel and Maros' hushed confession, "All the black roses speak of you."
