Without question these two Canadian artists are one of North America's best-kept secrets. They met while accompanying Canadian Tenors on tour and now have joined forces to create one of the most exciting and dyamic musical duos in recent memory.

These two highly gifted musicians are at the top of their improvisational craft. Their music features lush and captivating arrangements of familiar and contemporary numbers, with a highly cinematic and theatrical influence. They use elements of jazz, pops, and classical music that results in a thrilling live experience, often including a request set, as well as a fun and imaginative creative session.

Pianist Roy and Violinist Rosemary have already performed in a diverse number of venues raging from intimate house concerts, to Carnegie Hall, at the Miss America Pageant in Las Vegas, numerous private events for Donald Trump at his Mar-A-Lago estate i Palm Beach, as well as performances at the 2008 Beijing and the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Their debut album, Once Upon a Dream, is available on iTunes.
