Singer / songwriter Kathy Anderson first came up with the idea for the band two years ago after the previous band she sang with stopped performing. 'I was eager to perform my own music, rather than covers. I asked the 'cream of the crop' musicians I had performed with over the years to join me. I was so thrilled when they each said yes, without hesitation. This band is truly a gift to me.' Those musicians are keyboardist Rob Hamrick, drummer Gerry Piazza, lead guitarist Tom Pfau, bass player Pete Scibienski, and Kathy's husband, Dan, on the acoustic guitar.
