Dawn and Marra aren’t sisters but most people think they are. They’ve been performing together since Marra was fourteen and Dawn was sixteen. Drawn together by a love of music at such a young age, they immediately impressed all who listened. Song writing has always been at the heart of the duo. Debuting a new song most weeks has kept their loyal fans in the working class city of Hamilton enthralled by their rapid, but still natural development. Dawn has always been an old soul and as the primary songwriter in the group she brings a depth of understanding of the human condition that is breathtaking. Complementing Dawn is Marra, with her youthful exuberance and solid musicality. In 2010 they entered and won the Rising Star competition at the Hamilton Music Awards, dazzling the judges with their creativity. In the winter of 2012 they recorded a single with producer Dan Weston (Paper Lions, Northcote, The Reason); “A Love Letter,” rich in melody, with dense harmonies underlying simple yet poignant lyrics, the song tells the story of two lovers separated by oceans. The collaboration was very rewarding and did much to add to the young performers confidence and understanding of the art of producing. The song was well received, being played on the CBC and BBC as well as National Public Radio. The next six months was a period of incredible creative energy. Over fifteen songs were written. It was soon decided they were ready to return to the studio but first they needed the right producer. Scouring the backs of albums, one name appeared over and over again, Howard Redekopp. His work in the Indie genre is a who’s who of great Canadian bands; Tegan and Sara, Said the Whale, Paper Lions to name just a few. Emails were sent and returned, and over six months eight songs were chosen that would become Dawn and Marra’s debut album. In January 2013 the duo arrived in Vancouver, and over a three-week period they recorded the tracks that would become “Teaspoons and Tablespoons.”
