About March to May

March to May March to May began under unusual circumstances in late December of 2012. The musical spark between Darren and Beth arose around a roaring beach bonfire along a remote section of the Washington coast. Neither of them had realized the musical potential they shared when they first met a few weeks before – and not until several more chance encounters did they realize that the musical chemistry between them was truly magical. Once the spark hit, it didn't take long for them to catch fire. By March 2013 they had co-written their first two songs, by April they had a paid gig under their belts, and by May they had a name and shows booked out into the months ahead. Two years and over 80 shows later, they released their critically acclaimed debut EP, The Water’s Edge, to a sold-out show on a historic steamship. Their single, “Embers”, spent eleven consecutive weeks at #1 on Y'allwire’s Y'allternative Music Video charts and won an Akademia Award for Best Pop / Singer-Songwriter Song (August 2015). Their sound has drawn comparisons to acts like The Civil Wars, Damien Rice, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. Their single "Embers" prompted Chuck Taylor, former Sr. Editor at Billboard Magazine, to comment that “folk duo March to May’s soft and gentle new single “Embers” is certainly a song that we can all relate to…all that’s missing here is a fading sunset and a requisite glass of red wine.”

About Kristen Marlo

She is a classically trained vocalist and self-taught guitarist, but also an accomplished composer and lyricist. She is a United States Air Force veteran.

Over last decade she has been touring the US extensively in support of two independently released EPs, a live LP and a full band in studio LP. Her broad appeal is reflected in the eclectic list of internationally known American artists she’s opened for, including Sara Bareilles, Joshua Radin, Matt Hires, Eric Hutchinson, Allen Stone, April Smith, Fanfarlo, The Bravery, OAR, Gary Jules, folk singer Todd Snider, country artist Eric Church and others.
