Karmin

Karmin is an American hip hop duo consisting of Amy Renee Heidemann (born April 29, 1986 (age 28)) and Nicholas Louis "Nick" Noonan (born April 27, 1986 (age 28)). The duo was known previously for their covers posted on YouTube, including Chris Brown's "Look at Me Now" and Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass". Their original song "Take It Away" was used in promos for the 2011 NBA Finals.

Following the success of their covers, they were signed in 2011 to Epic Records, which was relaunched under L.A. Reid. In May 2012, Karmin released their debut EP, Hello, which spawned the singles "Brokenhearted" and "Hello" and received mixed reviews. "Brokenhearted" reached the top 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the top 10 in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, while "Hello" reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the United States. In March 2014, the duo released their debut album, Pulses, to moderate commercial and critical reception. The album's lead single, "Acapella", charted in the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand, and achieved moderate success in the United States. The duo left Epic Records in the middle of 2014 and has since released music independently.

Karmin is currently managed by Berklee College of Music graduate Nils Gums ('06), who founded the artist development and management firm, The Complex Group, Inc. alongside fellow Berklee alumnus, Matt Maltese and USC Film School graduate, Eric Zimmermann. Rolling Stone named Karmin's lead singer Amy as the winner of "Women Who Rock" contests.
