Kuf Knotz and Christine Elise with Special Guest Adam Ahuja
MC/poet/songwriter Kuf Knotz and classically trained harpist/guitarist/pianist/vocalist Christine Elise have combined forces to perform and record. The unlikely pair connected and built this project with a similar vision - wanting to create positive, forward-thinking music driven by a strong message. Both individuals are intrinsically motivated to foster community growth through musical expression.
Along with live performances, Knotz and Elise offer motivational creative arts workshops and performances at various settings such as hospitals, schools and community centers. Their mission is to use the power of music, personal experience and empathetic relation to help individuals grow to meet their fullest potential.
Knotz is one of today's fastest emerging alternative artists, which has led him to open for top acts Arrested Development, Common, G. Love, Ms. Lauryn Hill, The Roots, Bruce Springsteen and many others. He has a strong passion for supporting the community by participating in and facilitating fundraising events such as food drives, clothing drives, cancer benefits, and disaster relief efforts. Knotz is also a member of the WXPN program Musicians on Call, bringing live music to the bedsides of patients throughout hospitals in Philadelphia.
Christine Elise has a strong background in music therapy, having delivered music therapy services to children, adults and seniors with developmental delays, special needs and those needing emotional support. Finding a passion for community music therapy, she has facilitated group sessions for professionals and clients in the USA, South Africa, Peru and Jamaica. Elise has presented at national and regional music therapy conferences, with a focus on her community music therapy work, as well as written three scholarly articles published by Music Therapy Perspectives.
The duo will be releasing their debut album "Higher Grounds" in early 2019. For more information visit www.kufknotz.com.
