Marc and Michael met for the first time at the Northwest Festival in 1997. Marc was the headlining artist and served on the jury of the competition that Michael was lucky enough to win that year. They became fast friends, their paths crossing a number of times over the following few years, and they enjoyed playing reading duets together when the opportunity arose. They performed together for an audience for the first time at GuitarFestWest in Calgary, and enjoyed it so much they decided to make it a regular occurrence. In 2015 they gave a series of concerts in Spain for CaminoArtes, performing in 10th century churches along the Camino de Santiago, and played throughout the Pacific Northwest on two tours in 2016.
