Are they a classically-trained jazz-pop-folk-musical theatre fusion? Or do they just pick songs they like and then sing them?
Both Cricklewood residents, Carrie Dunn and Joe Burgess met three years ago at St Agnes Choir, and decided in the spring of 2017 to perform as a duo.
They love performing covers of pop music they were too young to appreciate first time round – as well as unique twists on jazz and musical theatre standards.
It’s a slight diversion from their backgrounds. Joe started formal piano lessons aged 7 and later became an organ scholar at Somerville College, Oxford. He is now a freelance musician, working as musical director and accompanist for several musical theatre societies in the London area, and is currently the Director of Music at St Agnes Church, Cricklewood.
Carrie began as a classical flautist and double bassist, and started singing as a teenager, when she trained with Lauren Field. While studying, her musical theatre roles included the Narrator in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors, and she has also performed as a vocalist for the BBC, among others.
