We’ve all heard the story a thousand times: Struggling musician turns to YouTube and catches a break. But this time, it’s a little different.
American folk-pop group Us The Duo (Michael and Carissa Alvarado) were just two solo artistes trying to make it in the industry before they joined forces and released their first six-second song cover on Vine. One after another, they continued with the videos and here they are now.
With over four million Vine followers, the insanely gorgeous married couple is the first from Vine to sign a major record deal (Republic Records). No Matter Where You Are, their latest single, is also featured in The Book of Life (an animated comedy feat. Zoe Saldana and Channing Tatum). Don’t miss the song’s newly wrapped music video!
This week, on Oct 20, they popped by Singapore to perform on the opening night of the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) Finals. While it wasn’t anything like a full-length concert, we couldn’t miss the opportunity to meet them.
Watch, as we get chummy with Us The Duo and chat about their top four life experiences, their music video shoot for No Matter Where You Are, and their thoughts on running out of love songs.
Stick till the end of the interview for a quick game of “If You Had 6 Seconds”.
Special thanks to Fast Track Singapore for the interview opportunity.
