Mark Lemaire is a guitarist, while Cindy joins him on vocals. Mark Lemaire has a day job as a sound engineer and Cindy Lemaire is a municipal planner.
Both have been involved in music for most of their lives, according to their website. Mark Lemaire has been playing guitar since he was 12 years of age, the website said, working to develop a “unique style.” Cindy has been singing since her high school days, everything from rock to music of the Renaissance and Middle Ages.
Many of their songs focus on married life, and the process (and art) of growing older. They have released four albums and reserve some songs for their live shows.
