Maryah’s interest in music began by singing “oldies” played on the local radio station as a child. Her love of singing and church hymns lead to a life-long career starting in college with the East Texas Baptist University (ETBU) Concert Choir, to singing across the United States and through Quebec, Trinidad and Russia. Her inspiration comes from female vocalists Rosemary Clooney, Julie London, Doris Day and Ella Fitzgerald, just to name a few.

Martyn Popey’s interest in music began as a teenager with rockabilly and 1950’s rock ‘n’ roll. He traveled the UK and Europe regularly, performing at live venues, on TV, and in recording sessions. His life took an unexpected turn when traveling on the EuroStar from a gig in Paris. On that early morning trip, Martyn met his future wife, crime novelist Gae-Lynn Woods. They married a year later and lived in London for seven years, and then relocated to East Texas, where they now live on a ranch. Since moving to East Texas Martyn has been very active in the local music scene. He plays guitar with the big band “The Sounds Of Swing” and performs solo Jazz guitar in the style of Joe Pass.
