"Based out of Vancouver, the duo Kelly & Gibson mix like a fine wine and good conversation as the two who “are trying to find good harmony” do so in a seamless and alluring manner. We here at Precision Select are happy the duo have blasted on the map for us after already making major moves in the music industry. With the professional touch these music sensations bring to the table we are sure this is just the start. We can’t stop falling back into “Why Do We Love Like This” simply because it’s just a well rounded beautiful piece with immersive vocals."
