When not working her day job helping the wounded as a nurse, Chrizle spends her time soothing weary ears with her soul-inspired folk music.

|THE MOOD JUNKIES|
|One fateful night, vocalist Tricia Coronel was in search of a guitarist after getting bailed on for a gig. Answering the online post was guitarist Mike Tiedge who, despite only having met Tricia once before, saved the show with an amazing clutch performance. From this chance meeting, and the subsequent inclusion of mutual friend and percussionist Jeremiah Francisco, The Mood Junkies was formed and the trio has never looked back. With each member bringing their own unique flavor and style, The Mood Junkies effortlessly blend jazz, latin, and soul music into an irresistible concoction. Be forewarned, one listen to their addictive sound and you might just become a junky yourself.|
|Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Nessa Rica began writing her own songs when she was just 10 years old, but it wasn't until her big move to Southern California in late 2007 that she really began her journey in becoming an independent artist and singer/songwriter. Able to play the piano and, more recently, the guitar, Nessa's style of music is derived from many musical influences, but she credits her family as her main source of inspiration. She enjoys engaging with her audience and is always willing to share a joke or two from her vast repertoire. Her first EP entitled "Heart's Desire" is now available on iTunes.|
|Teesa found her love of music through teaching herself guitar at a very young age. Her youth was spent playing in Rock-n-Roll bands, touring independently, and living out of her apartment-like van, before finally coming to Los Angeles to sharpen her voice and songwriting skills. Teesa developed her sound by bouncing her songs off the ears of music producer, Mighty Mike. His fantasy-like beat production mixed with her love for mega-pop melodies has created the sound you hear today. Influenced by Japanese Anime, 80's dance, Daft Punk, and everything Prince, Teesa wants to take her fans into an alternate realm of freedom - a world where you can soar like a super hero and dance like a party freak!|
