Erin Noëlle (singer-songwriter) and Bette Miller (music therapist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer) met many moons ago in Boston at an open mic. They quickly developed a friendship that has since spanned the coasts. It was not until this year, however, that they started exploring Erin’s original music as a duo, weaving vocal harmonies into songs ranging from gentle love ballads to more riotous compositions with a bluesy twist.
Molokai Mermaids, Kristen from Alabama and Melissa from Tennessee, are southern girls who grew up singing and dancing to the beat of their own drum. They found each other in LA through yoga and quickly realized they were the perfect dynamic duo with their mutual love of music and silliness. They decided to team up as the Molokai Mermaids; Kristen on the Ukulele and Melissa on vocals. Together they’re sure to deliver a smile to your face, music to your ears, and a little boogie in your soul.
