musical background that flavours their musical sensibilities.
The duo pursued music separately as Sue and Jaime for many years
until an opportunity arose for them to join voices and instruments on
stage. What a occurred was a natural partnership and the decision was
made to put a label on it...hummingBird was awakened.

Combining their love of music, experience and talent seemed like the
logical progression for these two. After only a year of playing a variety
of venues in and around the Bow Valley, hummingBird released their
