Miri Hunter grew up in a musically inspired household.
Her mother loved country and western, her dad was heavily into jazz and blues. Her favorite radio played everything from John Denver to James Brown to the Moody Blues. It was inevitable that Miri would become immersed in music. That upbringing coupled with classical piano training and passion to discover new sounds would mold Miri into the artist she would later become. She has recorded two solo CD's. Her original song "My Soul Will Be Restored" was awarded pop song of the year by the Toronto Music Festival. She currently calls the Southern California desert home. The expansiveness and solitude of desert life are the inspiration for her writing and performing.
Thom Merrick, a California native was initially inspired by the sounds of new wave and punk rock. He was the bass player for the 1980's New Wave band, Modphilo. They released an EP in the 1980's entitled "What Went On." For ten years he was a member of a well-known Southern California desert band, playing festivals and roadhouse venues throughout the state. The band had several song placements in film and TV productions, most notably with the Showtime production, "Weeds." In 2014, he traded in his bass (temporarily) for guitar. Merric has a passion for music and the desert lifestyle.
