"Influence CD review"

Jan Krist and Jim Bizer... manage to dispense a basketful of life-affirming wisdom without getting all up-in-your-face preachy. Things here range from pensive to laugh-out-loud funny. They're savvy on several fronts, mixing their harmonies, musical styles and subject matter with consummate skill.…The melody and harmonies are exceptional. While these two have their own solo careers, they make a great duo and we look forward to seeing them together again down the road. - Richard Cuccaro, AcousticLive.com - Richard Cuccaro, AcousticLive.com

Jan Krist and Jim Bizer hail from Detroit, justly famous as Motown, but home to myriad musical influences. They met and made music together while still in their teens. On their own they have each garnered acclaim as songwriters and performers: they have been winners or finalists at such events as Kerrville, NewSong, Detroit Music Awards and the Great American Song contest. Now, Jan & Jim have joined forces in a fun and formidable duo where the sum is greater than the already substantial parts.
