Christchurch-based duo featuring Crystal Mathieson on vocals and Des Newton on guitar and vocals.

 Before teaming up with Des, Crystal had a background of singing in musical stage shows and vocal groups.   She is a gifted natural singer with impeccable pitch and phrasing, and a wonderfully expressive voice.   

Singer and guitarist Des is one of the most sought-after and experienced local performers, having played in bands and performed solo for many years including several long-term residencies.  He has appeared with several high- profile NZ artists and performing on television.
