Chrysalis is an acoustic string trio of sisters and a brother outta Brevard, NC; Jenn on guitar, Jonlyn on fiddle, and JT on upright bass.
We grew up making music as a family- starting with humming and dancing a long as our parents played and sang. As we grew older we each found our individual voices and instruments.We were never forced or pushed by our parents to play, it just came naturally and the love of music lives on in our hearts! Although we call ourselves a trio we hear our parents and two older sisters harmonies in our hearts and minds every time the three of us play! We are thrilled when they can join us!
I was born and raised on a small farm in Penrose, North Carolina. I am the son of David and Debbie Siniard. My parents raised me to have faith in God, love my family and cherish my friendships. I try to incorporate those values into my music the best I can. My sister is my number one fan….and I’m hers.
Growing up in such a small town has its pros and cons, but I love it. Unlike many of my childhood friends, I chose to stay. I don’t want to “get out.” Besides, my music needs this place and this place needs my music. I started playing guitar later in life after a career ending injury kept me off the basketball court my senior year in college. I needed something to focus on and to relieve my stress. I chose music. The very first song I learned to play on the guitar was “Long-Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels, a song I still cover at shows today. The very first song I wrote was called “Hand Me Down.” A few weeks later I wrote, “Don’t Talk Crazy,” which is on my acoustic album recently released.
My first show was in a small Mexican Restaurant in Brevard, North Carolina. Downtown Brevard is only fifteen minutes from my parent’s farm. I played for chips and salsa. My favorite songs to play during shows are my originals. I want people to know who I am through my songs. I want to connect with listeners and fans through my music. Besides, music is the most powerful form of communication in the world. Having a guitar in my hand makes it easier to say what I really want to say and to express how I feel.
I hope to be playing music for the rest of my life. God willing.
