Danny Lovelock (guitar & vocals) is perpetually barefoot and unwashed, Natalee Fera (bass & vocals) leaves lipstick on the milk carton, Kenny Dietrich (drums) doesn’t like to wear clothes, and Kylan Prince was kicked out of Westminster Abbey for playing the theme from «The Exorcist» on the piano. Influenced by the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jack White, Eric Clapton, and classic rock, blues, and punk, this Vancouver four piece stops at nothing to entertain at every show, off and on the stage.
The the product of an ambush set-up, Marry Me brings together artists from completely different musical backgrounds (punk, musical theatre, metal, and classic rock).
It all started when Danny (the punk) thought that “Marry Me” would be a great name for a guy-girl band, and not long after, met Natalee (the musical theatre buff and high school teacher) one very lucky evening. The two then met Kenny (the metalhead), who was in school for audio engineering at Pacific Audio Visual Institute with Danny. After only 3 months together as Marry Me, they won first place at Supernova’s Battle of the Bands. They are constantly playing all over at Vancouver’s main music spots and set out on tour in BC and Alberta over the summer of 2013.
After releasing their debut EP in April 2013, Marry Me shot their first music video for the single “Ignite” in mid-May. The Marry Me EP sound is blues-punk-rock. It starts with the sexy, grooving “Feeling”, followed by “Ignite”, which makes you want to PARTY. “Rude” is a grindy, blues jam, and finally “The Bailiff” is irresistible retro pop!
Says producer Travis Saunders: “Marry Me is a band to watch out for. With their innovative style, aggressive guitars and slamming drums layered with melodic vocal harmonies that bring meaning to the word ‘catchy’, anyone who listens to this debut EP should consider themselves lucky”.
If The Killers, Mother Mother, Death Cab for Cutie, and The Naked and Famous fell into a giant's blender, the sweet satisfying smoothie created would be The Pits.
No use in trying to find us on the inter webs — we have yet to launch our social media or release our already recorded single/debut video «For Now Feel Better».
In the spirit of being professional, we are really taking our time with this project by selectively reaching out to places to play and people to share it with.
Their names are Courtney and StephanIe Fera, twin sisters who've been writing and performing for 15 years. Their musical influences run deep in the veins of their original songs. Blend together The harmonies of Hanson, the soul and depth of Patty Griffin and throw in the hooks and crooked humour of John Mayer and you've got Fera.
