“Anyone who has ever met Sweet Joyce Ann Martin or Annie Rettic knows that rarely has a combo’s name been so apt. Fearless performers on their own with original music steeped in folk and Americana traditions, both have been beloved mainstays of the local music scene for over a decade. Teaming up for their debut album together, Unleashed, Rettic provides viola and dulcimer, with Martin playing guitar, and both contributing songwriting and vocals.” “Even if you have never met the pair, Unleashed is like having a musical discussion with them.” “…it’s passionate music with humor and lyrical depth.” “As fun as the album is, it should be noted that live is where the songs truly stand out, with both Martin and Rettic’s charming stage presence and Martin’s quick-wit banter among the reasons for their popularity on the coffee house circuit. ”
