Although the duo is the core of this group, they are a musical collective. The band size is custom tailored to suit the needs of the client. This ranges from guitar & vocal duet to a full band. Chechi x Conrad has an incredibly diverse repertoire, spanning many genres and eras of music. They are just the group you need to set the mood at your next event, personally customized for your budget and musical needs. Read below to get to know the duo a bit better and to see them live and in action!
1. Where are you from?
Chechi: I am from Pontiac, Michigan.
Conrad: I am from Olmsted Falls, Ohio. We are both currently living in LA.
2. When did you start singing or playing an instrument?
Chechi: I started singing when I was 7 years old.
Conrad: Coincidentally I started playing guitar when I was 7 as well. Anyone can start, and here’s how!
3. What made you pursue it as a career?
Chechi: I couldn’t see myself doing anything other than music as a career.
Conrad: I got inspired by The Beatles in elementary school, and I knew then I wanted to do music for a living.
4. What or who is your musical influence? Past and present.
Chechi: I’ve been heavily influenced by Celine Dion, Brandy, UB40, Usher, Beyonce, and Koffie Olomide.
Conrad: Some of my all-time biggest influences are Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, John Coltrane, Kanye West, Michael McDonald, and J Dilla.
5. When did you form your band? What inspired you to make music together?
Chechi: We met at a gig three years ago. Conrad was playing for another artist in the lineup, and I was performing my own set. He approached me and said he wanted to produce records for me, which is what ended up happening.
Conrad: We have been playing gigs, writing, producing, and putting out music together since!
6. What is your favorite part of an event?
Chechi: We love getting a reaction out of the crowds, and seeing people enjoy themselves to our music.
Conrad: That to me is the most important part of what we do. Music has the ability to change someone’s mood or make their day better, and when I can do that at an event I feel like I’ve done my job.
7. What’s the craziest or most memorable thing that has happened at a wedding or event?
Chechi: One time I was singing during the bridal procession at a wedding. The bride had told me before to finish singing the whole song, no matter what happened. By the time I finished the first verse of the song the walk was complete, and they stood there for a good 2 minutes while I finished the song. The husband didn’t seem to know what was going on, and it was a pretty funny/awkward moment for me.
Conrad: Nothing particularly crazy has happened to me at many gigs, but sometimes they set us up to play in a spot where literally nobody can see or hear us. When that happens it’s always kind of hilarious to be giving that same energy and volume to a crowd of zero. We still do it cause that’s what we’re there to do.
8. What inspires you?
Chechi: Everyday life inspires me. I like to approach my music from a very real and raw perspective. When I perform, I’m not afraid to make myself vulnerable, so that people can feel me.
Conrad: I am really inspired by people who have done great things, in music or elsewhere. I like to study extremely successful business people and see how I can apply a piece of their workflow to my musical career. My family inspires me also.
