DuPrée, perhaps best known as one of the lead vocalists of Casselberry DuPree, brings to her audience a rich legacy of musical genres. Drawing on a background of gospel, folk, and country music, her songs encompass a downhome spirituality, coupled with a deep appreciation for the Gullah narrative, a bridge to her African roots. Add some reggae and blues, mix with a generous helping of social commentary and you begin to understand the wealth of this singer/songwriter. DuPrée's soaring contralto voice, powerful vibrato and melodious yodeling grip the listener with hope for humanity; her songs evoke the haunting quality of a longing for truth and an inquiry into the different shades of justice.
Barry Kornhauser was born in the Midwest of the Bronx and presently lives in Brooklyn. He is a composer, arranger, teacher and multi-instrumentalist (cello, guitar, bass guitar and mandola) in a wide variety of musical environments. He has performed on stages ranging from Merkin Hall and NJPAC to the Bronx Zoo and Hippo Playground. From Saint John the Divine and Trinity Church to Sing Sing Prison and Creedmoor. He has collaborated with DuPrée as an accompanist since the early 90s.
