American Housewife is the songwriting duo of Stephanie Paquin & Maureen Rudd, formerly of Space Heater. 

“In Like a Lion”, their first release, is an alt pop album that shimmers like the water of the lakes in their hometown of Minneapolis. The lyrics hang on regret, longing and movement. The layered guitars are sonically varied, the hooks coming heavy and often. The harmonies soar. The music has universal themes and irresistible charms. It’s for anyone who’s traveled some distance to arrive at who they are.

American Housewife is honored to have made the top 16 bands in the Star Tribune’s 2017 “Are You Local?” competition and to be performing at Minneapolis' own Basilica Block Party in July of 2017.
