Karmin Biography

Last updated: 02/27/2012

Karmin is a collision of Nick’s Classic Rock upbringing and Jazz education (a trained trombonist) and Amy’s R&B influence and Pop background. Together they found music at it’s simplest form, percussion and voice. With the addition of guitar, Karmin pulls the listener back to a time where music was sincere and honest. Simplicity is key with this music!

Nick and Amy met at Berklee College of Music in Boston by way of small town lives in Old Town, Maine and Seward, Nebraska. They began writing songs together to meet the demands of school projects, but later took on the name “Karmin” to put an identity to their distinct writing style.

After working separately with several other groups, Nick and Amy decided to take their promising collaboration to the next level by performing around the East Coast as a duo.

“The Little Band with a Big Sound” – Karmin is Boston’s premier acoustic pop sound. Armed with two voices, a guitar, and a wooden box; Nick and Amy put on a dynamic show – full of catchy pop tunes, feel-good ballads, and rock/hip-hop inspired concoctions! Their first CD, “Inside Out” was released in May 2010.
