Chrissie has had words and music in her soul from the day she was born.  Following in her pianist mother’s footsteps – she studied classical music throughout high school and college as a bassoon player.  Her music is acoustic pop/rock with a message.  She writes from the heart about things those things that move her soul and it’s the combination of catchy, rhythmic melodies her music stands apart.  She is an energetic, captivating performer – a true story teller at heart; in short an act not to be missed.

After beginning his musical journey as a trumpet player, Ken was inspired by the likes of Jaco Pastorius and Marcus Miller to focus on the electric bass as his main instrument.  In addition to his work as a performing musician, Ken has done countless studio sessions for various artists, and has contributed to the recording and producing of many local acts at Howling Hose Studios with his long-time collaborator, Mark Gifford.

They met many, many moons ago at an audition where Chrissie showed up to secure the lead singer position for a new band that was forming.  She didn’t get the gig but was forever imprinted in the mind, heart and soul of Ken.  Many years went by and both performed in bands around town.  They eventually wound up in a The band Fast Forward together back in ’08 and enjoyed playing – performing various pop and rock cover tunes.  The band ended and they went their separate ways until Chrissie was forming an acoustic act and contacted Ken to see if he wanted to play in the band.  They started working together and although that band didn’t continue the two became inseparable forming not just a musical connection but an emotional, spiritual and mental connection as well.  The band is unparalleled and their musical limits unbounded.  Come out and hear this one of a kind act!
