Hi guys!!!!!!!! We’ve missed you!!!!!!! We hope you enjoy this video dedicated to baby Archie. (We made a similar video for Emmie after she was born…you can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QJ8yCzLxZM)
It’s been eons since our last video. We hope everyone is staying healthy and hanging in there. If you missed our update in June, it’s basically that we: had a baby (duh), bought a new house on the West Coast (mainly to take advantage of major grandparent help from across the border in Vancouver, Canada 😂), the pandemic hit, we moved, aaaaaand… we’ve been waiting for the border to open ever since!!!!!!! These are such difficult times, but we feel lucky that we’ve at least been able to spend a lot of time enjoying our kids. We’re in the midst of construction on our new recording studio, which was delayed because of Covid, but once that’s finished in December we look forward to sharing that new space with you all in our next videos!
A note on this song choice, if anyone is curious why we picked it. We obviously worship Mariah, but we also LOVE Schitt’s Creek, which I binge-watched in the early months of breastfeeding Archie at all hours of the day and night. So I weirdly associate Archie with that show, and of course David Rose’s favorite singer is Mariah, so… a no brainer! 😄
Special thank you to our nanny Hannah for her help filming!

We were as one, babe
For a moment in time
And it seemed everlasting
That you would always be mine
Now you wanna be free
So I’m letting you fly
‘Cause I know in my heart, babe
Our love will never die, no
(CHORUS): You’ll always be a part of me
I’m part of you indefinitely
Boy, don’t you know you can’t escape me?
Ooh, darling, ’cause you’ll always be my baby
And we’ll linger on
Time can’t erase a feeling this strong
No way, you’re never gonna shake me
Ooh, darling, ’cause you’ll always be my baby
I ain’t gonna cry, no
And I won’t beg you to stay
If you’re determined to leave, boy
I will not stand in your way
You’ll be back again
‘Cause you know in your heart, babe
Our love will never end, no
I know that you’ll be back, boy
When your days and your nights get a little bit colder
I know that you’ll be right back, baby
Oh, baby, believe me it’s only a matter of time
You and I will always be
BROOKLYN DUO BIO:
Founded in 2014, Brooklyn Duo has quickly established itself as one of today’s most successful classical crossover ensembles. Through its creative arrangements and live video performances, the piano and cello duo has garnered a huge following, with over 1.1 million YouTube subscribers and over 150 million streams annually on platforms such as Spotify and Pandora Radio.
In 2014, the couple arranged and recorded two pop covers and released them on YouTube. Shakira noticed the duo’s cover and promoted it to her 130 million-plus fan base, saying: “We’re loving Brooklyn Duo’s piano/cello cover of Empire! Great work guys.” The boost that resulted from that exposure and the positive response they were getting on YouTube encouraged Marnie and Patrick to continue creating videos. (Other notable shout-outs since then include ones from Taylor Swift, a-ha and Pearl Jam.)
Today, Marnie and Patrick have released over 100 videos on their Brooklyn Duo YouTube channel and 9 albums of covers, spanning artists from The Beatles to Metallica to Ariana Grande. They also have a second YouTube channel, “Brooklyn Classical”, which aims to introduce classical music to a larger audience through high quality, live video performances. Brooklyn Classical often hosts high-profile guest artists, including the world-renowned Dover and Escher string quartets, percussionist Ivan Trevino and cellist Cicely Parnas.
Popular classical music stations Classic FM and WQXR regularly share Brooklyn Duo’s music on their social media pages, with Classic FM calling the duo “masters of the artfully planned pop cover.” Their music has also been featured on several television shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and America’s Got Talent.
