Native to Oak Harbor, Wa. Weak Sheep (Marielle Rypstra- with brother, Nehemiah Renner) creates sounds of the indie folk flavor with original lyrics and music written by Marielle.
Growing up in a home that fostered the love for and opportunities to play music (including their older brother's raucous punk band, SOAPBOX, which played everyday after school in the family home) shaped much of the ability to learn and play music.
At the age of 14 Marielle was taught guitar by Nehemiah Renner (then 12) and the journey of song writing and family jam sessions began.
Instruments and lyrical content have been added over the years to form Weak Sheep but the passion remains the same. To just play music.
