Married duo, The Fontaines, have a long history of performance in Windsor/Essex.
Sara specializes in performing and teaching theatre, jazz, and pop vocal performance and Ryan is both an upright and electric bassist. Ryan has toured nationally with Johnny Favourite Swing Orchestra and is a sought after session bassist. Sara has been a featured soloist with the WSO as well as multiple area choirs. They both perform with local theatre groups, Ryan in the pit orchestra and Sara onstage.
Despite their eclectic musical careers Ryan and Sara waited almost 10 years to start making music together. Although most closely aligned with the folk genre, their music draws on elements of pop, classic country and jazz. As the songwriter, Sara crafts lyrics that allow the listener to discover meaning and nuance. Ryan adds his unique upright bass technique blending bowing, plucking and percussion. These things, combined with their masterful blend of vocal harmony, have left audiences moved and entertained.
