You've been wishing for some upbeat, ray-of-sunshine-in-a-dark-world music, but just can't stomach the endless autotune of pop. Well, now you've found it. The Kwerks' warm harmonies and fresh folk sound will have you tapping your toe and singing along in minutes, only to realize the lyrics are as authentic as the duo's straightforward acoustic vibe.
Laura and Ryan Koch are a married couple who dropped everything to pursue music, and in a few short years have built up an eager west coast fan base that has been itching for each new release they offer. Two EPs in 2016, a commercial deal with Dominion Lending Centres, and a Fraser Valley Music Award nomination have been tucked under the belt in no time at all, and just this year, they were seen on the CBC Searchlight's NATIONAL TOP 25 list, awarded by popular vote.
Both on the stage and on the screen as exhibited in their hilarious YouTube and Facebook presence, the pair and their band have been making their fans mighty happy as they blend authentic, heartfelt lyrics with fun, upbeat tunes.
Whether performing with their full band or as an “up close and cheeky” duo, a solid mix of folk-pop, bluegrass and pop-rock is what makes up The Kwerks' sound, and their message is simple. Enjoy life. Live it now. Say yes.
