Think your jeans on the day after Thanksgiving are tight? Check this out: Performing Songwriter says that Kit Smith and Tanya Livingstone's harmonies "are tighter than your granny's throw rug." Linked by a palpable chemistry - both personal and musical - of the kind rarely seen outside the laboratory, Kit and Tanya have been performing together since 1996, when Tanya jumped at the chance to join Kit on stage in support of his debut album, "Stronger Man" (Bitemark Records). While pursuing independent musical and family projects they continued to delight live audiences through the years and in 2005, awash in material, they were compelled to collaborate for the first time as co-writers. The resulting CD heralds this collaboration as a fine idea indeed. Released by Song Crisis Records in 2006, "Central Connection" is an evocative collection of songs that expose and explore the ups, downs, and critical life changes of an eventful year. Now partners in every sense, Kit and Tanya continue to write, record, and perform award-winning songs, lauded by fans, critics, and organizations like West Coast Songwriters. Blurring the lines between Americana, Folk, and Pop, their heartfelt, passionate music resonates with radio listeners and live audiences everywhere.
