"Ramon and Jessica is the alter-ego duo of songwriters Jesse Olsen and Dina Maccabee. The R&J collaboration has continued to evolve since its viola-and-casio-keyboard driven inception in 2003, but at the center of the RJ sound remain two constants: intertwining vocal harmonies and unmistakably quirky tunes."
