Jeremy Facknitz & Teresa Storch
Jeremy Facknitz didn't even pick up a guitar and begin writing songs until he was 18 years old. His aunt, a songwriter herself, passed down her old Yamaha acoustic to Jeremy as Christmas gift. Within a few short months, the Michigan native found himself competing in local talent shows and jamming in various basement bands. In 1997 he made the trek upstairs and joined the Detroit-based band 'The Ottomans' (2001 Best New Alternative Band, Detroit Music Awards). Jeremy played bass guitar in the project, was the main music contributor to the groups compositions. After 'The Ottomans' parted ways in 2002, Jeremy and brother Jarod formed under the moniker 'Standing Room Only' and shared their not-so-subtle mix of deadly serious and comedic songs with intimate coffee shop gatherings throughout the mid-west. Since going solo in September 2003, Jeremy has lived and played all over the United States. Having completed U.S. mini-tours in 2006 and 2008, plans are underway for a 2010 tour to support his new album, "Music From The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack". Jeremy is currently living in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he performs and teaches lessons.
Singer/songwriter Teresa Storch is constantly moving, either on stage or in her Pontiac Vibe. She has been releasing albums and touring nationally since 2003, spreading her funky-soulful folk throughout the country. She's now known as a voice and presence not to be missed, with a passion you feel from the audience and a connection like she's known you forever. She'll draw you in with her rich, engaging voice, rhythmic, percussive guitar and writing that has roots in folk, jazz and blues--pulling stories from real-life and taking snapshots of what matters most.
Teresa got her start doing Denver area open mics after obtaining an engineering degree from the Colorado School of Mines and performing regularly with the Boulder Ballet. In 1999, she moved to Cambridge, MA to explore it's vibrant songwriter scene and grow as a writer and performer. Fall of 2009 brought her back to settle near her family in Colorado. She has been recognized for her writing and performance by Susquehanna Music and Arts Festival 2005, Flat Rock Music Festival 2005, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival 2003, and Boston's Best Singer/Songwriters Showcase 2003. With two EP releases under her belt, "Muscle Memory" and "'Live' For Now", her first full-length studio album "Stream of Concrete" was released August 2008.
