Fans of Richard Brautigan, get your hopes down -- while the band is named for his novel, the similarities end there. The songwriting duo of Keith Grimwood and Ezra Idlet met in 1979 as part of a folk-rock band named St. Elmo's Fire. The group broke up soon after, and T.F.I.A. was born, a collaboration that enabled Grimwood and Idlet to explore their love of acoustic music. It so happened most of the songs they dug were also kid-friendly, and they've enjoyed multiple Grammy nominations in the Children's Music category over the years.
