Marnie, from southern Ontario, Canada is a trained Jazz singer and pianist whose strong songwriting skills set the base for many of the tunes the duo produce together. Influences include Mamma Cass, The Beatles and Beethoven. Her songs often discuss topics that can challenge the average listener to embrace deeper meaning and emotion.
Kirwan, originally from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia shied away from the Celtic influence of growing up in Cape Breton and was drawn to bands such as Tribe Called Quest, Digible Planets and early Ice Cube. Juxtaposed with his love of The Cure, Janes Addiction and The Raveonettes, his guitar playing and production skills pull together all his influences to create dense and dark arrangements.
The duo writes, records and produces all songs.
