Korpus Kristy & The Skinwalkers began when songwriter Kristy Cepielik gained interest from a major record label in Los Angeles. She was asked to record a great four-song demo to deliver to the label. The first goal was acheived and snowballed into the quest for putting together a quality band. For the next year the Skinwalkers were a collaboration of a variety of talented, professional musicians. Cepielik continued on in the studio to make her four-song demo into a full-length CD she titled 'The Hookah Tale.' The CD includes talented musicians: Dave Beyer, Melissa Etheridges drummer, Ardy Sarraf of The Beatles tribute band, The Fab Four; local Southern California talents, Pat O'Brien, lead guitar, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, barotone guitar, recorder and harpsichord (to name a few); and cellist Matt Cooker who has graced the stage of the Hollywood Bowl, played with Barbara Streisand, performed music for major films such as Jurassic Park and too many awards shows to list. The list goes on, as there are over 15 wonderful musicians on 'The Hookah Tale.'
