*** Plus Special Guests ***
REN HARVIEU is an English singer/songwriter from Salford, Greater Manchester. While in sixth form college, she performed in musical theatre and entered several talent competitions before uploading some of her own recordings to Myspace where she was discovered. After being introduced to Music Producer Jimmy Hogarth she began working on demos and was signed to Universal music when she was 18.
Ren started recording an album but in May 2011, before it could be released, she broke her back in what she describes as a ‘freak accident’. After a 14-hour operation, Harvieu spent several months recovering at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital.
On 5 December 2011, the BBC announced that she had been nominated for their BBC Sounds of 2012 poll. After releasing the singles Through the Night and Open Up Your Arms her first album Through the Night was released on Island Records on 14 May 2012, entering the UK album chart at No 5.
Ren is currently working on her second album.
“People are drawn to their song-writing, the clever melodies and in particular the sound of their voices singing in unison – simply beautiful.” – Louder Than War
“It almost seems impossible that two voices can compliment one another in such a relaxed and seemingly accidental way, quite frankly, they’re built on sounding perfect.” – It Sounded Sweet
“Morrissey and Marshall are fantastically engaging and have a remarkably large sound for only two people” – Supajam
“Like a new, rocking, Everly brothers” – Paul Gallagher (DJ)
“I’ve watched them from afar for some time… I’m a big fan” – Ryan Tubridy (TV personality)

As well as full band, Morrissey & Marshall perform as a harmony duo and have toured with The Magic Numbers, Sinead O’Connor, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott and Damien Dempsey to name a few.
