Hi we’re Mary & Jon and we make music with each other as well as a variety of other projects including First Rate People. Here’s a little chat we had with each other re: our musical origins.
Jon: Hi Mary! So what do you think is most interesting about us? I know you’ve said something like we compliment each other.
Mary: Haha that is true. As for what is most interesting about us I think it’s our mutual appreciation. I think our brains and musical stylings are just very compatible.
Jon: I would agree but more specifically what musically does each of us bring to this duo? I’m probably the maximalist right??
Mary: Haha you bring in the production genius and I think I bring in simplicity.
Jon: There is definitely a sense of urgency I’ve noticed like most other things take a backseat when were really into something.
Mary: We’re both just really excited about what we’re working on.
