JOANNE LEDIGER | VOCALS

A particularly strong point of the band is the inter-play between the voices of John Markowski and Joanne Lediger. Too few bands realize what you can achieve having two singers that combine as well as these two sharing the load. Their voices mesh, contrast and then come back to each other, like quarrelsome lovers. Worth the price of admission on its own.
