Once Upon a time - The Song of Two Singers

Anastasia Gilliam and Zay Harrison teamed up in 2011 and started writing and composing, infusing their own unique sounds into the heartfelt, soulful sound of Butterfly Breakdown. They have a natural ability for storytelling and strike a sophisticated balance in their craft as song-smiths with intellect and whimsy through songs that speak of their experiences.
In addition to composing and performing together, this dynamic duo recently spread their wings by adding a new member into their kaleidoscope:
Alex Tripp (Guitarist, Pianist, Singer, Songwriter). Check out the "BIO" page for the lowdown.
This has expanded the overall sound and sonic depths of the vocals and instrumentation and taken this group to a whole new level.

They have woven their influences together ranging from Blues artists like Albert King to Bonnie Raitt with Rock inspirations from the likes of Led Zepplin,
Pearl Jam and Heart mixed with a soulful flair from singers like Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Adele with the raw power of Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse.
Their shows are made up of an eclectic blend of original music and a vast repertoire of their favorite cover tunes from Americana, R&B, Pop, Indie Rock and Blues. Reminiscent of Eva Cassidy in their approach to their own shows, they choose only songs that speak to them, then they share THAT with you.

Currently the group performs between Seattle, WA, the Rose City and throughout the Pacific NW. They've become official "Artists in Residence" on the McMenamin's Pub circuit and are working on the finishing touches on their full length album "Blue" recorded with a full band, set to be released in late 2014.
