American duo Мatt & Kim appeared in 2004 in Brooklyn, New York. The band’s lineup includes a keyboard player Matt Johnson and a drummer Kim Schifino. Both members of the duo have excellent vocal skills. The musicians have a special approach to their music and performances, doing all the work on their own. Matt and Kim became popular in the music business thanks to their marketing efforts on social media.
Matt Johnson, who was born in Whitingham, Vermont, met Kim Schifino, who was born in Providence, RI while studying at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. They started dating and moved in together. Johnson started learning how to play the keyboards. Schifino honed her drumming skills. Before starting to work together, neither of them had any experience playing musical instruments. However, the couple was determined to succeed, and so it did.
Soon the duo’s friends, who were part of the local student group Japanther invited them to perform together. Matt and Kim gave their early concerts in small bars and clubs in Brooklyn. Soon, they started traveling all over the USA. In 2005, the duo released its first EP, To and From.
