    Genna and Jesse are duo alchemy at its finest. Sweet and savory, raspy and smooth, together they create a unique vocal sound, and then they complement that blend with Jesse’s prowess at the piano and guitar. Whether they sing their own songs, or the well-chosen songs of their peers, audiences are along for the ride in an intimate and inclusive show. Their live performances are gentle and inviting – yet powerful – due in part to solid stagecraft and a comfort level with their music and with each other. Another big factor in their shows is Genna’s subtle phrasing and exceptional interpretation. She delivers songs as gifts to an audience. The stunning harmonies that Genna and Jesse weave are the final secret ingredient in their performance magic. Opening are The Gatehouse Saints and Chris Akers

Q: Chris, How did the recording at the cabin go?
A: Hey, I have one more day of recording to go, but man... These are far and away the best songs I've ever written. A lot of work to be done, but I narrowed it down to the eleven songs I want and got basic vocals and bass, rhythm, etc. recorded. I am really proud of this album. If it's the only one I ever do, I think it will have been worth it. Can't wait to share this with people.
