"...an Indie-Pop dog chewin' on a Jazz bone."
“What an awesome, dynamic duo! Great music with catchy melodies, smooth harmonies and skillful guitar licks! Quite entertaining!” - D. Luna, Claremont, CA
Come hear the extraordinary sounds of The Ordinary Two! A duo from Denver, CO whose creation has been a long time in the making. Guitarist Jim Disner, who has shared the stage with jazz greats like Stanley Jordan and Ron Miles, joins his wife, vocalist Tanya Disner, in laid-back, acoustic, indie-pop, with a lot of jazz flavor and sweet vocal harmonies.
Jim fell in love with Tanya when he first heard her sing. Theirs is a story of inspiring love and overcoming odds. Sultry vocals and fancy fretwork spin tales of life, love and the open road in a unique Alternative/Folk/Jazz blend of simultaneously humorous, inspiring, and mournful original songs - along with some unexpected covers. Together they harmonize like only soul-mates can
With the 2018 release of their self-titled EP "The Ordinary Two" the duo began performing across the country, travelling in their DIY-converted camper/touring/mobile studio van they named Werner. In 2019 the touring continued, along with the release of the double-single "Lesser Travelled Road / We're not Gonna Take It".
When the pandemic cancelled all of their shows in 2020, they streamed "Couch Concerts" online. For 13 months they performed from home or wherever they were to keep their sanity. You sit on your couch and they will entertain you! They also kept busy recording and releasing the singles - "When The World Stops Ending", "DMV", and "Find You".
A collaboration EP with the retro-R&B horn-band, Muchly Suchwise, in 2021 brought a new take on three of their songs, also a partial return to live performances.
Their latest single, "Change", is a haunting lament of the struggle to stay above the abyss while watching the world change before your eyes. Ever knowing that Love is the answer.
The two lovebirds are optimistic for 2022 - promising one studio, and one live-ish LP, and a (hopefully) full return to touring and live performances.

A haunting lament of the struggle to stay above the abyss while watching the world change before your eyes. Ever knowing that Love is the answer.
Our upbeat, jangly, summertime song about killing...weeds!
Single release Oct 21 2020
A humorous song about patience and people-watching, or a deep question of identity, "Are you who you're supposed to be?" Stuck quarantined in our studio we venture far from our typical acoustic sound.
When The World Stops Ending
Single release Apr 9 2020
Our Covid-19 song. Written in late March 2020. Hopefully some silver linings come of this.
Single release Apr 15 2020
This song woke us up at 3am to be written - worried about someone close to us suffering from depression. We are all searching for ourselves. Can a sad song of guilt and regret help us heal old or chronic wounds?

Our most auto-biographical song. Our friends Dave Simpkins and Antwon Owens join us on bass and drums.
