Bio

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 they realized the potential in writing their own original music. 

Their first track 'Out of The Dark' was released in April 2017, they then self-released their debut EP ‘Out of the Dark’ single by single which was a finalist in multiple international songwriting competitions. They now play as a 5 piece band, which allows them to create a more dynamic live sound and are currently working on releasing their second EP single by single and playing shows around Vancouver and surrounding areas. 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.

 

"In order to never quit you have to see hope, and in order to see hope you have to never quit."
