Candy and John began performing original material during the year 2000 while they were attending the Southland Polytechnic, now Southern Institute of Technology. They released their first studio album, Purely Secrets, in December of 2003. During 2007 “Kramit” became “The House of Kramit” due to the involvement of other artists in the band, ranging from a 5 piece rock band to the 11 piece line up featured in the Past & Present DVD which was recorded in April of 2007. Due to many technical problems The House of Kramit - Past & Present wasn’t released until November of 2009. That year also saw Kramit returning to the studio to record their second album, The Next Session, a collection of Kramit songs arranged for a full rock band. The Next Session was released in December of 2009 and at the Southland Entertainer of the Year Awards, 2010, it was awarded "Southland Original Album of the Year". “Electric Chocolate” took the world by storm in 2017, and they have just released part 3 of a 4 part EP series, "GET"! The evolution of Kramit getting their "Ship Together"
