Alice’s Summerthing 2014: Us The Duo
Us The Duo Around the Web:
3 years ago, two emerging solo artists from opposite sides of the country randomly collided, fell in love, and combined their talent into Us The Duo. A few successful YouTube videos (23+ million views) encouraged these songwriters to write their own music together, leading them to produce their first self-titled album, Us. 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 four months. They released their 2nd album, No Matter Where You Are, which peaked at #22 on the iTunes pop charts, and #19 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart. Us The Duo has made a name for themselves on Vine, with their 6-second musical covers and arrangements – gaining over 3 million followers in four months.
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 recently signed to Republic Records and rereleased their album “No Matter Where You Are” on May 6th.
