Press

 

“This [Fire In The Flame] is a gorgeous folk album by award winning London, ON duo Jane Carmichael and Kevin Kennedy who have crafted very catchy melodic tunes that even those not into the folk kingdom can sink their teeth into. Wonderful writing and delivery make this easily one of the best albums of 2016.”
Canadian Music Blog

 

“Carmichael (the chief songwriter) has an ear for other people’s touching tales, and then the couple adds great-sounding folk and country-edged hooks and harmonies…[she] has the kind of voice that hits you just at the right moment, and is the kind of writer who knows when to place those moments in a song.”

Bob Mersereau, Top 100 Canadian Blog

 

“I hadn’t heard of this duo until now but I won’t let that happen again. Their voices pair together so well with the music, you won’t want the songs to end.”
Amanda Hather, Canadian Beats

 

“There’s something timeless about The Marrieds’ music. By timeless I mean, when you throw on the duo’s latest – Fire in the Flame (their third full-length) - you wouldn’t be far off the mark to wonder if you’re listening to an old Shawn Colvin or Mary Chapin Carpenter record. But it could also be a new First Aid Kit or The Head and the Heart release.”
Stephen Cribar, 50ThirdAnd3rd
