Christy & The Professors started in early 2013 as a fun indie rock project for husband and wife, Christy (vocals/guitar/songwriting) & Nathan Foster (bass). Soon after Shane Pitmon joined bringing his signature dynamic guitar to the sound. Wanting to produce a more ambient and sonic vibe, the band brought in guitarist/synth player Michael Benson to the project. Joseph Dravenstatt was enlisted on drums due to his creative and driving beats which pulls everything together.

Christy & The Professors’ debut EP VOICES was released in April, 2014 and includes the producing/engineering talents of Andy Patalan (Sponge) & the mixing & mastering skills of Tim Patalan at the Loft Studio in Saline, MI to record “Flare”.

Voices, Hereafter & Church were produced/engineered B.J. Perry at the Wall of Sound Studios in Memphis, MI and mixed/mastered by Christopher J. Bloom of Bloom’s Room in Denver, CO,

The band also worked with Travis Ross of Ripjaw Media to produce and direct music videos for Flare and Voices, both of which have had great response.

Known as hardworking and grateful, Christy & The Professors are making their mark on the scene with their engaging, unique, thoughtful, dynamic, passionate sound and stage presence.
