    Music

    Listen

    Music & chat with Morrissey & Marshall

    Their sound has been likened to the classic duos of the sixties & has drawn comparisons with the irresistible harmonies of The Everly Brothers, Simon and Garfunkel, with an Irish twist. Legendary producer John Reynolds, perhaps best known for his work with Sinéad O'Connor & Damien Dempsey is now honing their sound. In studio with Miriam is Darren Morrissey & Greg Marshall.
