Except for Carly Lewis, who was born in London, England, the members of No Secrets grew up in Los Angeles. Carly, who is the daughter of Adrian Gurvitz, a famed guitarist, took the first steps toward forming No Secrets in 2000, when she convinced her father that it was her dream to become a musician, and that he could make it come true. The pair then decided to form a girl group. Cousins Jade Ryusaki and Erin Tanner, who were both of Hawaiian descent and had performed as hula dancers, were scouted and subsequently joined the group. Then, Gurvitz placed an advertisement in a local newspaper, and Angel Faith answered, bringing her friend Jessica Fried along with her.
Once the group line-up had been completed, No Secrets began recording songs, touring, and promoting their group. In June of 2001, No Secrets joined Aaron Carter in Toronto for the shooting of his video Oh Aaron, and they also collaborated in the taping of the song, providing background vocals. In 2002, they filmed their first video, a home VHS and DVD video named No Secrets - Get to Know Us. Later, in 2002, the group released their self-titled debut album, which included That’s What Girls Do (from The PowerPuff Girls Movie) and Kids in America (from Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius), a remake of the 1982 hit that was popularized by Kim Wilde.
However, disagreements between members of the group led to the eventual break-up of No Secrets. At one point, Carly, Jade, Erin, and Jessica recorded a remake of Atomic Kitten’s hit “Whole Again,” excluding (and unbeknownst to) Angel (coincidentally, fellow girl group Play had also covered “Whole Again” in the same time period and released it as a single from their album Replay). Angel, who had sung the majority of leads in No Secrets, then left the group to pursue a solo career. The four remaining members recorded and shot a video for the song “Once Upon Another Dream” for Disney’s re-release of Sleeping Beauty, but they parted ways soon after this.
Besides Angel Faith, Jessica Fried is also said to be pursuing a solo career, under the name “Jessi Malay.” Erin Tanner has adopted the stage name “Nicki Foxx” (sometimes just “Nicki”) and is also working on solo material.
In August of 2005, Carly Lewis married her fiancee Brian Merrick. Former No Secrets members Jade, Jessica, and Erin were among Carly’s bridesmaids.
