When Troy Falck and Marilyn Hatfield first met, they did the rumba, and sparks flew. They began playing music together soon after in 2005, and it’s been magic ever since. Marilyn’s rhythm background is rich in west African drumming and dance arts, and Troy’s guitar style is self-taught and fluid. In 2013, the dynamic duo released a percussion EP, SonicsKin, featuring their single Step in Time, that reached the top 5 on Canadian college radio play for 12 weeks. In the spring of 2018, enter bassist, Charles Curtis, a gifted multi-instrumentalist, and you have a recipe for dynamite.
