Chris Kelly and Nicole Gibson (Vancouver) // https://www.kellyandgibson.com/
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 and over half a million plays on SoundCloud they realized the potential in writing their own original music.
There 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.

Focus Your Audio (Vancouver) // http://www.focusyouraudio.ca/
FYA was built on a crossroads of two colliding paths. Standing there facing each other, a framework of effortless collaboration started to quickly take shape. Stepping back Sarah & Bobby began marvelling at this beautiful structure of moving acoustic guitar riffs, coupled with poetic lyrics that bare heart and soul. They decided to venture off the roads that led them to each other and create a path where there was none. After founding and working the last 3 years in Modern Day Poets, Bobby immediately went to work on Focus. “ Being in Modern Day Poets was a great experience and I enjoyed every minute, but something was missing, now I’ve come to realize what that is. This project is what I’ve been waiting for.” Having spent her childhood involved in her family band, Sarah spent much of her time writing and collaborating with those closest. After taking a break from performing, Sarah relocated to Vancouver and began a musical partnership with Bobby, blossoming into a duo that was a perfect match in every way. Together Focus Your Audio brings an experience of songwriting and musicality that is often left behind in today’s fast pace society. Melodic vocals and heartfelt guitar leave the audience wanting more.
