Biography

Deb Hunseder and Steph Callahan met in 1989 and had their first gig two weeks later. The harmonies were magic. From the first note, they knew they had something that could not be matched. Since 1989 the duo has opened for national acts including John Mayer, Pat Benatar, India.Irie, Joan Osborne, Tabithas Secret (now Matchbox 20), Sister Hazel, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Joan Bias, Cheryl Wheeler, Wynona Judd, Patrice Pike, Sarah Bettens, Melissa Ferrick, and Koko Taylor.
They've also performed their stirring accapella rendition of the national anthem for the Atlanta Braves, Tampa Rays and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Halcyon has built a iron clad fan base by touring the US and abroad. They've played many main stage Pride events, Olivia cruises and festivals including Atlanta, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Alaska, York, England and tour heavily in the southeastern US.
With twenty years of experience, and eight CD's between them in the bag, this duo is a finely tuned personable act. They are capable of touring as a duo, or as a band.

Halcyon prefers to do "shows" 1 long set or two shorter sets, but they are flexible. They have plenty of material. They try to keep shows upbeat, but if it's an intimate venue, they will pull out some of the more thought provoking tunes.
