Laura Walker is native of the Chattanooga, TN area and has been playing and singing for 30 years. A 15-year veteran of The Dismembered Tennesseans, she is a upright bass player and vocalist with a strong lead voice and right on harmonies. One of the founding members of Sistren, a Chattanooga-based group featuring three part female harmonies, Laura loves to mesmerize audiences with her vocal versatility. Her later musical endeavor, Timbre Fox, is a great showcase for her voice and rhythm guitar.

Born in California and a long time resident of East Tennessee, Daniel Parkin comes from a musical family. With his unique guitar style and powerful voice, Daniel inherited tremendous songwriting skills from his mother. A former brick mason who only returned to his musical roots a short ten years ago, Daniel penned and performed Palm of His Hand, a powerful song of faith featured in the multiple award winning, oscar nominated movie, Winter’s Bone. He continues to command asudiences with his beautiful voice and original songs.
