Drums, Background Singer.


Missive is a mix of rock and acoustic/electric pop with an American soul. Getting its start in the spring of 06', Nate Marriner and Rich Carney began writing and performing together as an idea from the mind of former advertising executive Matthew Durkin. Stepping out into a music scene that's one of the most innovative and successful in the country, Missive is quickly finding a home in Raleigh, NC.
