Just a boy and a girl trying to find a good harmony. Now based in Vancouver, Chris Kelly and Nicole Gibson met in Montreal, at a merch table while both fronting their own bands. They began collaborating by making duo versions of popular songs on YouTube. After acquiring over a half a million views on their YouTube videos and over half a million plays on SoundCloud they realized the potential in writing their own original music. Self described as 'pop rock with an edge' they write "whenever we feel inspired by a certain event, a person, an emotion or just life in general, whatever triggers a song.” A portion of all proceeds made from their music goes to a variety of feline foster and adoption services across Canada.
