Captain Captain Cutie Pie is a musical duo made up of Makenna Lang and Laura Lynn Williams.  
We met in the residence halls at Samford University and became roommates soon after based on our mutual love of Brandi Carlile and One Tree Hill.  A few months after moving in together we learned that Makenna could SING and so we formed a Christmas song duo, which soon turned into a cover band, which soon turned into a writing partnership with songs like Body out of Birmingham, I Do Not Talk to Boys, and Truth Will Wreck.

After three years of undergraduate studies, life, and writing together, we've finally decided to make a record.  With so much demand for songs like Birmingham we've finally figured out that a Youtube presence isn't enough. Basically, we're tired of making you come to shows to hear our songs...

So we've set a really modest budget and are hoping to record during winter break so that before (that dreaded word) graduation in May we will have a collection of all the songs that have gotten us through this college experience together.

We don't really know what else to say except that this music and this partnership has been such a meaningful part of our years at Samford, and we're tired of keeping it to ourselves...so we want to give it to you.

Risks and challenges

We are college students - so we'll be working on weekends, holidays, and late nights to get this project done. Be patient with us, because we're having to learn to be patient with ourselves.
