Sipos & Young Deliver Fire and Substance
The virtuoso guitar capabilities of Chris Sipos provide superb tempo and temperament for every intricately arranged offering in the pair’s songbook. The prodigiously accomplished multi-instrumentalist has been a working musician all his adult life and the fulcrum of every group he’s ever joined. A one-man band in this setting, he fills the spaces around and between vocals with blistering solos, beguiling hooks and intricate fills that add dimension and scope to every number.
Classically trained Rachel’s celestial singing style offers the perfect vehicle for the duo’s penchant toward music that shines a light on life’s ever-changing spectrum of emotions. The shimmering inflections wrap around her partner’s gravel-toned vocal eloquence to produce a third instrument of pleasingly precise articulation.

- 12-2 Mark Paffrath http://markpaffrath.com/
Pop/folk singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Mark Paffrath has been charming audiences for over 25 years. From the concert and festival stage to your local bar and grill or coffeehouse, his thoughtfully chosen interpretations and well crafted original music are as much about his history as where he would like to be; as much about how the world is, as the way he’d like to see it. His observations, repartee and humor are self-deprecating but keen, quirky and refreshing. His command of vocal and instrumental skills is well honed from years of performing. Artists of his genuine sensitivity and caring are rare and often alienated or discouraged by the music business – but this is all he ’s ever wanted to do – and he’s doing it!
