Chris Butler: Vocals, Guitars, Instruments.
Chris got his musical start in Louisville, a
Detroit city boy transplanted for his high school years on the edge of the South, rich
with bluegrass, horse racing and bourbon. Boston's grit, chock-full of garage bands, drew
him away to college in the East. After playing music chairs in countless bands, he headed
off to San Francisco to explore the wave of new media and the bourgeoning indie movement.
It was here, across from the Hall of Justice, in the center of Bail Bonds Gardens, that
he met Wendy and started to record with her. Chris played with The Rescuers
before forming Jinx with Wendy.
Wendy Skratt: Vocals, Bass, Refinements.
Wendy's creative roots grew out of the dust of the San Jose hills.
At an early age, she was drawn to photography as a way to express herself. As her
talent surfaced, Wendy sought to explore art school in Washington, DC.
When she returned to San Francisco, she found herself amidst a social revolution
brought about by technology and the wash of new dreams. She met Chris in the heart
of this creative whirlpool and was persuaded to lend her voice to a single he was
recording. Her uniquely textured voice added new harmony to Chris' melancholy
wanderings and the two have collaborated since.
