March to May
Press: Ever Kipp (Ever@TinyHuman.com)
Seattle-based folk pop duo March to May interweaves guitar and harp with rich vocal harmonies, haunting lyrics, and riveting melodies. They formed in early 2013 after a chance meeting out on a wild stretch of the Washington coast. They released their debut EP, The Water's Edge, to critical acclaim in April 2015. In addition to an active calendar of shows in Seattle and further afield, they are in the middle of producing two music videos and a full-length album.
