Jonny Kunis and Shim Gartner initially started playing music together at the age of 16 when Shim moved to Atlanta, Georgia after living in both Israel and Canada. While at first it was just for fun, the two musicians realized they had a chemistry that wouldn't come into play until years later. This chemistry was evident on a pop-punk project the two worked on in 2009 under the moniker "The High Tones." After recording an EP with that group the two parted ways for college, assuming that they were headed in different musical directions. Fast forward to winter break of 2011, when the two songwriters were helping each other complete some compositions and came up with the idea of releasing a split-EP. Over the next two weeks the collaboration became so involved and dynamic it could not be ignored and the duo Jonny & Shim was born. A few months later they self-produced the demos that later became their eponymous debut album (soundcloud.com/jonnyandshim)
