The Marvins are guitar and bass, two voices, partners in song, partners in crime, and partners in life. The Marvins are soaring harmonies, timeless, romantic and inspired lyricism, and percussive guitar and bass work, this acoustic duo creates a high energy live performance which could rightly be mistaken as a 5 piece string band.
With over 15 years of collaboration under their belt, Carmen Paradise (bass and vocals) and Peter LeClair (guitar and vocals) have taken The Marvins on a long winding journey that has picked up endless influences and a created a multi-dimensional sound that is their own. The Marvins have played over 500 performances across the continental US, and self-released two full length albums as well as a handful of EPs. Since it's genesis, The Marvins sound has gone through a great deal of metamorphosis and stylistic change, which has led them to their latest release, Train Tracks, a collection of Americana modern folk songs written for and inspired by the U.S. Railway. Check out their kickstarter that made their journey and that release possible! [+]
