Steve Seskin is one of the most successful writers in Nashville today, with a boatload of songs recorded by luminaries of the music industry. Steve is also an electrifying performer and recording artist. "His voice has a natural lilt that can't be learned," writes Joel Selvin in the San Francisco Chronicle, and "the presentation is simple, affective, and effective," according to Jim Carnes in the Sacramento Union. Few performers can face an audience with only an acoustic guitar and hotwire its emotions. But that's what happens at Steve's concerts. On his records, you can hear the hits as only the writer can present them - as well as other jewels, waiting to be discovered.

Singer-Guitarist Elise Witt was born in Switzerland, raised in NC, and since 1977 has made her home in Atlanta. She speaks and sings in at least a dozen languages. Recently returned from a cultural exchange to South Africa, Elise has sung everywhere from New York's Carnegie Hall to the Popular Music Festival in Siena Italy. In 1995 Elise was chosen to represent the State of Georgia for the Kennedy Center's 25th Anniversary Celebration and in 1997 she joined Jimmy & Rosalyn Carter in celebrating the 20th anniverary of the Friendship Force. For the year 2000, Elise was also chosen as a Residency Artist for "America Creates for the Milennium." Elise Witt s charismatic stage presence and her gorgeous voice are the moving forces that have garnered such recognition. All of Elise's songs come straight from the heart and her voice has the power to carry you to distant lands as well as inner landscapes. By the end of a concert, it is not unusual to have the entire audience to be singing in fabulous seven-part harmony!
