Chris was born and raised in southern Japan. Living as a civilian near Sasebo U.S. Naval Base, his Dad was a math teacher. After graduating high school, Chris moved to the states and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Feeling too far away from his home in Japan, Chris moved to Hawaii and Oregon before finding a place that finally felt like a new home in the Pacific Northwest.
Mary began her journey in the sticks of Alaska. Her first venture out of the Last Frontier was in a VW bug along with 6 siblings, her Mom and a cat – on a road trip down the unpaved AlCan (Alaska-Canada) Highway to Seattle, Washington. Her travels have found her living on islands at sea level all the way up to 10,200 ft. elevation in Colorado. Once she found herself back in the Pacific Northwest, she began to focus on her drumming and songwriting.
