The story goes that 3 years ago, two solo artists from opposite sides of the country randomly collided, fell in love, and combined their talent into Us The Duo. A few successful YouTube videos (23+ million views) encouraged these songwriters to write their own music together, leading them to produce their first self-titled album. After its release, Michael & Carissa got married. They actually signed a record deal shortly after their wedding and will be going on tour this summer as "Us the Duo".
