“The Pairs became a festival favourite after their very first song. Their infectious energy, joy, and talent had the entire audience enraptured immediately and they have become the band most requested to return ever since. Book them while you still can! I hope I can!” - Miranda Mulholland

Family is what ties The Pairs together. With soaring harmonies, they share stories of life’s hope, hilarity, and hardship. An honest, quirky stage presence and their unbottled chemistry, quickly connects them with their audience. The line between the stage and the crowd becomes blurred as if we’ve all pulled up a seat around their family’s lively kitchen table. Powered by three classically trained vocalists and a former punk rock drummer, The Pairs offer a unique blend of music that will hug your eardrums and inspire you to dance.
high hopes (single) review
“The blending between the vocals and the acoustic guitar on this track are exceptionally well done. When the harmony vocal and the organ enter the track, it goes from a good relaxing acoustic folk tune to an outstanding folk soundscape. I really appreciate the depth of this track. The minimalist layering in the production is exactly perfect for conveying the sincerity in the lyrical message. This reminds me of something from Blaze Foley or John Prine. It’s outstanding.” - Greg Jones
