Bernard was born on the Caribbean Island of St. Kitts and lived there until age twelve. Calypso rhythms and lyrics were his earliest musical influences. He is a graduate of Berklee College of Music in flute and composition. He is also a psychologist and author of two books: 1) I Am With You Always: Living by Faith in the 21st Century and 2) God, Self & Community: Revelation, Testimony & Practice.

Laurel studied voice in college and has performed in many church and secular groups. Bernard and Laurel first worked together in 2003 when she was a director and singer with a choir at Polar Grove Baptist Church in Maryland, where Bernard played the flute. He noticed that Laurel had the ability to inhabit a song; to get comfortable with it and to make it reflect her own personality.
