Chris and Brendan have an intertwining musical history dating back to their high school days in the Royal Oak suburb of Detroit. But high school ended and the two had to move on to pursue their individual musical paths. Chris left for Colorado to pay in a few bands and Brendan went to record the album 'One Mississippi' for Virgin Records. After doing their respective stints in each region, life just seemed more appealing back home.
Coincidentally, they both returned to the Royal Oaks suburb of Detroit on the very same day! It wasn't long before they picked up where they left off. Chris had been writing tunes and Brendan wanted to produce them with his new studio gear. The next thing you know, Mood Elevator was born.
