Named after the Norse goddess of love, Freya is a musical duo that emanates the essence of their namesake with every note. With intertwining melodies and exquisite harmonies, the duo has taken their serendipitous convergence and created a distinct and original flavour that evokes the passion, anguish and natural beauty that rests at the heart of their music. Noel Fudge combines fingerpicking, strumming, percussive techniques and a range of alternative tunings that together demonstrate compositional mastery and stand alone as stunning, but invite the intricately woven string melodies of partner/co-writer Martine denBok. Known primarily as an accomplished classically trained musician and Principal Second Violinist of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, her lush, sensuous tone and melodic characters will pull at all kinds of your heart strings. Together, the duo form an unmistakably unique sound that is fresh, and timeless. Noel and Martine live in New Denver, BC on the shores of the Slocan Lake.
