Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby

Wreckless Eric & Amy RigbyConsidering he pioneered the British alternative music scene alongside labelmates Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe on the ground-breaking British label Stiff Records, and she's the cynically witty rocker whose 1996 solo debut earned her critical acclaim including Spin's "Songwriter of the Year" honor, husband and wife Eric Goulden (aka Wreckless Eric) and Amy Rigby certainly seem made for each other, musically-speaking.

The couple's debut release was released in the summer of 2008.
