Creativity has always been a way of life.
The duo’s assemblage and subsequent process has been fortuitous to say the least. While still developing her guitar skills, as well as the vulnerability and courage required to share her gifts with others, Marissa was fortunate to pair up with Scott, who has spent many of his adult years teaching private music lessons. Scott’s gentle encouragement and patience created a safe space for the two of them to work collaboratively. Scott’s musicianship, production choices and recording know-how swiftly preserved the raw, earnest spirit of Marissa’s demo of “Meet Me Halfway” while bringing it to its full expression.

Marissa describes the way the partnership has flourished since the spring: “We were familiar with one another through our small scene but hadn’t had too much time to get to know one another until we started recording this track. We’d both been social distancing over the last year or so and we found that our recording sessions always started with at least a 45min to an hour chat, talking about anything and everything, partly because we both missed human connection but also, we were still learning about one another. This time helped us bond and form a space that allowed us to create.
