From a YouTube cover channel to their recently released second EP, Keep Your Secrets has been a community effort since its inception. Malerie Gamblin and Matt Nguyen-Ngo started their band as a cover channel. The duo had attended undergrad together at William & Mary in Williamsburg, VA and started the channel in 2020. Malerie sang and Matt played the instruments.
