In Between EP Release July 17, 2020
Matthew and Christina grew up in neighboring small towns southwest of Chicago, peripherally aware of each other through overlapping music circles. In 2014, after six spiritually formative years living in California, Christina returned to her hometown, where she and Matthew would become reacquainted. In early 2017, the pair began enhancing each other’s songs as the acoustic duo Matthew Michael & Christina Marie (MMCM), and have been writing, performing, and touring nationally together ever since. July 2020 the duo released their debut EP In Between, a collection of songs born out of hope for the ideal, angst of the actual, and peace found in Presence.
Emerging from their mutual roots in the midwest, MMCM engages audiences from the heartland to the coasts with honest songs expressed in harmonically-rich layers of voices and strings. They approach music with reverence to moment, regard for the past, and exploration of the future.

Words from Others
I have curated Chicago Acoustic Underground for over 12 years and in that time have presented dozens of duos. ‘Matthew Michael and Christina Marie’ are one of the top three Duos that have ever been on the show. The blending of their voices and instruments is flawless.
