Laura and Ryan Koch are a married couple who dropped everything to pursue music, and in a few short years have built up an eager west coast fan base that has been itching for each new release they offer. Two EPs in 2016, a commercial deal with Dominion Lending Centres, and a Fraser Valley Music Award nomination all landed in their laps in their first year. Since then, they’ve scooped up two more nominations, an award for “Excellence in Performance by a Female Artist”, they’ve released their new album, Bigger Badder Dreams, and landed themselves in the National TOP 10 in CBC Searchlight 2018, awarded by popular vote, thanks to their loyal army of fans, KwerkNation.
Both on the stage and on the screen as exhibited in their hilarious YouTube and Facebook presence, the pair and their band have been making their fans mighty happy as they blend authentic, heartfelt lyrics with fun, upbeat tunes.
Whether performing with their full band or as an “up close and cheeky” duo, a solid mix of folk-pop, bluegrass and pop-rock is what makes up The Kwerks' sound, and their message is simple. Enjoy life. Live it now. Say yes.
