While they often write independently, they are equally likely to write together, each bringing their own unique style to the music. They are accomplished guitarists whose trademarks are beautiful harmonies and well- crafted songs. Sweet Marie have opened for Brandi Carlile, Thompson Square and American Nomads and have appeared at Mountain Jam the last two years.
