Similarly, with Marie Conway, the bands female lead vocalist, who following her days as an X-Factor finalist, performed as lead vocalist with her own band . Marie has now honed her performance skills and vocal ability to sky-high level of professional performance. Her vocals are a pure delight.
Together, the joint performance of Tabby and Marie is highly polished, exciting powerful and captivating.
