Hello from Karmin!

Nick and Amy talk life, love and music

'When Nick was in the 5th grade at Herbert Sargent School, I remember saying to his parents, Mike and Judy, 'Your son is very gifted and if he chooses this path of music, we'll be buying his CD some day.' Shianne Priest, music director, Leonard Middle School, Old Town

The last 13 months have been an intensely wild ride for pop-duo Karmin who just released their first major-label release, 'Hello' (Epic) last week. In that time, they've gone from playing their songs on the street to playing 'Saturday Night Live,' 'Ellen' and 'The Tonight Show,' and they are currently packing arenas. Say hello to Nick and Amy of Karmin.

Old Town native Nick Noonan and Amy Heidemann, originally of Seward, Nebraska, met near the end of their freshman year at Berklee College of Music in Boston where the duo graduated in 2010. 'We knew of each other,' Nick remembered. 'She always hung out with the gospel crowd, and I just kind of hung out with the horn players. She was the hot singer and I was like the weird jazz-head.' Noonan recalls having a conversation with Heidemann just before breaking for the summer. 'We came back for the first week of sophomore year, we talked at a party and really hit it off. That was it.'
