“They are the talented twosome taking the internet by storm.” – Good Morning America
3 years ago, two emerging solo artists from opposite sides of the country randomly collided, fell in love, and combined their talents to form Us The Duo. A few successful YouTube videos (25+ million views) encouraged these pop-folk songwriters to write their own music together, leading them to produce their first self-titled album in 2012. After its release, Michael & Carissa got married and have been traveling and playing music together ever since.
These two have gained quick exposure in the last six months. They rereleased their second album, No Matter Where You Are, on May 6th and it’s climbed to #9 on the iTunes Pop Chart and #7 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. Us The Duo have also made a name for themselves on Vine, with their 6-second musical covers and arrangements – gaining over 3.3 million followers.
Us The Duo attended the 2014 Billboard Music Awards as official digital influencer artists and their successes have led to press and media attention from Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter, Business Insider, BuzzFeed and iHeartRadio. Good Morning America also became fans of Us The Duo, and they performed live throughout the show on February 20th. Us The Duo signed to Republic Records in March and will embark on a North American Tour this July.
