Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan met during their freshmen year at Berklee College of Music. They were featured in the same concert, her playing strings and him jazz trombone. They started dating in the sophomore year and formed duo Karmin which is a combination of the word “Carmen” aka “Song” in Latin and “Karma”.
Despite starting off in classical route, Amy has always loved rap. “We started hearing Nicki Minaj and more rap on pop radio,” she said in an interview. “I’ve always loved rap, but I grew up in a Christian household and wasn’t allowed to listen to stuff with a parental advisory sticker on it. So I knew I could rap in the shower, but I was so terrified about posting it online.”
Karmin covered such songs as Minaj’s “Super Bass” and Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now” and uploaded them online, propelling their online cult popularity status. An EP titled “Inside Out” was released in 2010. Up to their second album, “The Winslow Session”, Karmin were still an indie act. But their name caught the attention of L.A. Reid who then signed them under Epic. Karmin – Brokenhearted now playing on Tablet TV
