The McCarricks are based in London, England and met in Lawrence, Kansas, United States in 1996 at the infamous rock venue The Bottleneck. At the time, Kimberlee was a professional violinist in the Kansas Symphony Orchestra, while Martin was on tour as guitarist and electric cellist with Therapy?. Previously Martin had worked as musician/writer and string arranger, touring, recording and creating a large back catalogue of work with the likes of Siouxsie and the Banshees, This Mortal Coil, Dead Can Dance, Kristin Hersh, Marc Almond, Skunk Anansie and Therapy? to name but a few.
After two years spent living between Kimberlee's Kansas City apartment and Martin's London home they settled in South-East London where they continue to live and work. They have worked extensively as studio and live musicians, individually and together - as instrumentalists, string arrangers, and as soundtrack designers/composers. They are currently working on music and films for future performance as well as writing and recording material for themselves and for other artists encompacing a diversity that many other musicians merely dream of - from contemporary classical - to Rock - to Industrial - as well as adding 'phat' strings to the work of some of breakbeat scenes most revered producers including Taishan, Jimmy Mofo and the Beat Assasins. Recent collaborations include Kristin Hersh, Siouxse Sioux, Sinead O'Connor, Gary Numan, Marianne Faithful and the Patti Smith's Meltdown concerts at The Royal Festival Hall in London.
