Michele Woofter and Marvin Ray Hawkins are Fort Lauderdale’s musical power couple. They rock together and have the love thing down too. In a relationship for nearly thirty years and married for seventeen, they only formed Koffin Varnish as a two-piece in 2012. Woofter and Hawkins have discovered that the band has strengthened their marriage, and in turn enhanced the music they create.
We met up at the Miami City Cemetery, where we found a historic memorial site to converse. We talked a while about the evolution of Koffin Varnish through the years, adding drummer Shaun Bailey and guitarist Aerik Nagel. We discussed their recent experience touring Japan and their work on a self titled recording project with Jeff Martin at Simple Kill Studios.
