The Royal Oak Music Theatre is slated to showcase drum/keyboard duo Matt & Kim on Wednesday, April 18. Although Matt Johnson is from Vermont and Kim Schifino is from Rhode Island, the two met while students at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute. According to Johnson in a 2016 Westword interview, they were immediately drawn to each other.
“I grew up in a small town in Vermont,” Johnson said, “and I’m a little bit younger than Kim is — and here’s this girl with tattoos and a little bit older than me. I’m like a country boy from Vermont, essentially. She gave me her number, and I was too scared to call. And then she saw me again, and she cursed me out for not calling her, because she’s the very forward one.”
And, for the duo’s sake, it was good they met again. The two would go on to have a succesful relationship and created the now award-winning duo Matt & Kim. Together, the group has released five studio albums that all showcase their unique mix of electronic dance music, and the prolific group has released nearly 20 singles.
