Sucré is a musical group comprised of Stacy King, Darren King and Jeremy Larson. Variety magazine writes that the band "at times recalls Florence + The Machine and Leona Lewis.” The Insider says the band's music is "the sweetest music my ears have heard in a long time.”

Four years. That’s how long California dreamy-pop duo the Honey Trees took to make its debut LP. Such a careful, diligent, even leisurely pace is virtually unheard of in today’s music landscape, where the hype machine churns ever faster. But the Honey Trees wasn't looking for hype; it was looking for magic. And magic takes time.

Christie and Collin, the two youngest members of the DuPree family, compose the duo Merriment. With their four older siblings and cousin comprising the indie pop outfit Eisley, their brother-in-laws being Max Bemis of Say Anything and Darren King of Mutemath, their mother being a vocalist, and their father being a band manager, surely it would surprise no one that Christie and Collin would embark on their own musical endeavor. The young duo has essentially grown up on the road—having toured alongside Eisley since they were young kids—and now share the stage with the band as the opening act.
