For the Reporter

You Knew Me When – a husband and wife duo from Music City, USA – is a musical convergence of folk, indie rock and passionate songwriting.

The couple's national tour stops at the Kent Station for a Jan. 18 performance at the Reds Wine Bar, 321 Ramsay Way, No. 110.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Saturday. There is no cover charge.

After uprooting from their Nashville, Tenn., home and full-time jobs in June 2012, the husband and wife act set plans to tour the country for a full year. That tour has been extended to 18 months.

The couple have been serving up their craft-brewed compositions coast to coast throughout the USA and into Canada.

Their first studio album, "You, Me, and the Rest of the World", which was released in late 2012, conveys the dualistic melding of Karisa and Cie's musical styles. It is an album that parades between a fusion of progressive indie rock and folky compositions all infused with a myriad of pulsing and stirring beats.

While blending their vocals, Karisa, who previously served as a Nashville public school music teacher, provides the piano, ukulele and glockenspiel, as Cie, who spent several years as the global events manager for Gibson Guitar, supplies the guitar and rhythmic nuances. The cumulative result is a musical style that blends a singer-songwriter soul with a pop/rock mentality.
