You Knew Me When, an indie folk-rock duo from Nashville, Tenn., is touring troubadour style in support of its second album and will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at The Ale House, 2531 N. 12th St.

Last June, the husband and wife team of Cie and Karisa Hoover put their full-time jobs on hold and began a yearlong tour, with stops throughout the United States and into Canada, according to a news release.

They’ve played more than 150 shows in more than 40 states and traveled more than 35,000 miles.

The duo’s sophomore album “You, Me and the Rest of the World” was recorded in Nashville prior to the launch of the tour. It is as “an album that parades between a fusion of progressive indie-rock and folky compositions all infused with a myriad of pulsing and stirring beats,” the news release said.

Karisa, who was a Nashville public school music teacher, plays piano, ukulele and glockenspiel.

Cie, who was the global events production manager for Gibson Guitar, plays the guitar and creates rhythmic nuances, the release said.
