Kelly & Gibson

Just a boy and a girl trying to find a good harmony.

Now based in Vancouver, Chris and Nicole met in Montreal, at a merch table while both fronting their own bands. They began collaborating by making duo versions of popular songs on YouTube.

After acquiring over a half a million views on their YouTube videos, which landed them a spot on MTV, they realized the potential in writing their own original music. The duo self-released their debut EP ‘Out of the Dark’ single by single. Songs from their first EP went on to be finalists in multiple international songwriting competitions. Most notably coming fourth in Linkin Parks Open Labs Stagelight Competition.

After a successful first summer of touring as a five-piece, sharing the stage with notable acts such as Shari Ulrich and Elliot Brood, the duo received funding from Creative BC’s Amplify program to record an EP, live video and music video which they have been working on before they start their next run of shows.

Described as ‘Gemini pop’, their two voices work as fraternal twins that mirror, support and split from each other.
