Autumn Rene: Vocals / Keyboards
Singer and Songwriter Autumn Rene is an old soul with a natural knack for taking songs that are decades before her time, giving them a new flavor and making them her own. Her original music is an eclectic mix of Blues, R&B, Soul and Pop all laced with elements of jazz. Though she has an open minded appreciation and ability to sing a wide variety of music styles her heart has and always will be in jazz. She is continuing to study voice and taking classes that place emphasis on learning more about the music business, music theory and composition so that she improve her own original music.
Ray Liban: Keyboards / Vocals
Ray began to exhibit a natural ability for the piano at the early age of 4. After hearing songs on the radio, he would go to the piano and start playing them. As a self-taught pianist, he was able to carve out his own distinctive sound, always experimenting and always alert to the subtleties in music. This ability has driven his passion and creativity ever since. Now he writes and records his own songs in his home studio. His style of music spans many genres, including jazz, funk, pop/rock, R&B, and reggae. He has attended classes at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. He has also shared the stage and toured with WAMI-winning artist Tammy Winn. He has recorded 3 Christmas CDs, and done jingles for local radio stations.
The very first time Autumn and Ray performed it was like they had been playing together for years. Autumn has a soulful and captivating way with her vocals as well as a few tricks on the keyboard. Ray adds a jazzy perspective with his masterful keyboard stylings and adds a touch of color with his vocals. This duo will bring a fun, light hearted, yet classy ambience to any event.
