Great vocal harmonies and awesome guitar instrumentation ensues…. www.thebetterhalvesmusic.com

The Better Halves are a husband-wife musical duo who specialize in making listeners smile. With training at the Berklee College of Music and GIT in Hollywood, Jimmy Joe is a skilled guitarist. Country, bluegrass, folk, jazz, Latin and classical styles create a widely appealing repertoire. He has a talent for crafting story songs and has had one of his car songs featured on NPR’s “Car Talk.” Chrissie joins him with sweet vocal harmonies and rhythm guitar. Her whimsical, melodic songwriting earned her the chance to perform on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion”. Together they write funny, touching duets with clever lyrics and real boy-girl banter. They also play rousing Chet Atkins influenced instrumentals, which always bring down showers of applause! Their songs uplift and entertain audiences of all ages, and they perform in settings from weddings to schools to local festivals. They have been a staple at one of the farmers markets in Austin, TX, for years, where they touch hearts and get toes to tapping with their upbeat, fun and inspiring music!
Avenue Elle has been an Austin musical collaboration since 2003. The two girls, Alison Lumley and Chrissie Natoli, sing songs of love, hope and inspiration. Alison was a Kerrville Newfolk artist in 2012 and a Kerrville Regional performer in 2013. Avenue Elle was featured in Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Duet Contest in October 2012. Their most distinguishing feature is their individual vocal styles, which blend to create a uniquely beautiful harmony that touches and uplifts the hearts of their listeners.
