Songwriter and guitarist Kristen Veayo, sings lead. Her sister Katherine sings harmony while keeping the rhythm on drums or keys. Carter Isaac contributes a passionate lead vocal and an energetic style of piano playing. Isaac, 16,  has a writer’s contract with Jim Mayer of the Jimmy Buffet band. In addition to original material, the band covers Top 40-style artists, including One Republic, Christina Aguilera, Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga, Karmin, Monsters of Men and Taylor Swift, and oldies such as Bob Dylan and Tom Petty.
