Karmin is an American duo, performing pop, synthpop, and hip-hop. It was formed in 2010 by Amy Renee Heidemann and Nick Lewis Noonan.
Amy was born on 29 April 1986. The future celebrity attended school in Seward, Nebraska. When she was in 6th grade, the girl started demonstrating an impressive vocal talent. She was a big fan of rap, which was gaining popularity at the time. However, her parents were against such music preferences and tried to raise the girl as an exemplary Catholic.
Nick was born on 27 April 1986, just two days before Amy. He attended school in Old Town, Maine. The boy became interested in music rather early. He played the trombone in the school jazz orchestra and was a big fan of the classic rock.
Nick and Amy met each other in Boston. Both enrolled at Berkley. Even though the musicians had different majors, it didn’t stop them from finding time to date. Nick and Amy became a couple in 2005 and started living together shortly after.
In 2008, both young musicians graduated from Berkley and decided to start their own music project. At first, they were creating cover versions of popular singles and uploading them to YouTube. They called themselves Karmin. It stems from the Latin word “carmen”, which means “song”.
