Welcome to our website!
We are very excited to announce a radio and promotional campaign for our album, "Here's to Love." Its rollout was delayed due to the global pandemic, so we are delighted to share it with you now!
Also, we are rehearsing a new show, and look forward to seeing our fans across the country, later this year and in 2023. Until then, you can hear our music on many online platforms, or perhaps on your local radio station.
Peace and Love,
Maripat & Richard
“Maripat and Richard make singing together sound easy (and it isn’t). Their voices were made for each other—warm and musical and as comfortable as fuzzy bedroom slippers! Their first CD (beautifully produced by Shelly Markham) is full of highlights, with maybe my favorite being an imaginatively re-worked Old Devil Moon. Enjoy!”

“Maripat and Richard exude a special type of chemistry which is captured within this album. They not only have a beautiful way of blending when they sing together, but they each have a unique personality when they sing solo. Their musicality notwithstanding, their interpretation and embodiment of the message of each song is where they really excel. Yes, they are fantastic musicians in their own right, but getting the message across on songs with unique lyrics is no easy task. Take a listen to “Here’s To Love” and you’ll hear that musicality and chemistry I speak of, but more importantly, you’ll hear their skills of interpretation. This is what makes their album worthy of your time to listen.

“A Classy Collection! The teaming of Davis and Osborn on Here's to Love is a symphony of riches from the Great American Songbook. A classy collection.”
