Nine To Never Is…
Jennifer’s parents could both carry a tune; from her Dad singing Frankie Vallie songs or her Mom belting out classic country, music was always a part of her upbringing. She sang in her church choir, but did not seriously pursue singing until the age of 18 when she first sang in front of a large crowd at a county fair. She auditioned for the Johnnie High Country Music Revue show in Arlington, TX and the Grapevine Opry, where she performed at both venues numerous times. From weddings to funerals, to hundreds of karaoke performances, she was hooked on her passion of singing. She also wrote and recorded with local Dallas area musicians. With Chris as her music partner, she is ready to take music to the next level in her life.
Chris started in music at the age of 9 on the recorder in school. Eventually he learned the drums as this was his instrument of choice since the earliest he could remember. He learned and played heavily throughout his childhood and was influenced by a wide range of musical acts from Led Zepplin to John Denver. He began playing the guitar at age 15 with his older brother Dan. Dan had started taking lessons and needed someone to play along with. Chris would put the sticks down and learn the lessons that his older brother had been taught and through this, learned to play the guitar. In high school, Chris received classical piano training from Jan Brachel, a notable performer and instructor in the Detroit area. Eventually, Chris started hosting open mic’s at the local coffee shop’s and bar’s in the area. Chris has worked with several notable musicians and has participated in several moments that defined Chris’ drive, dedication, and mission; to play music professionally everyday. Session work for: D12, members of P-Funk, and the likes of DJ Assault, Chris grew his experience and had the opportunity to “fill in” when needed. Chris was always involved in music on every level, from recording friends in his in-house studio, to filling in for bands in various roles on drums, guitar, or bass.
