Qristina and Quinn Bachand and Friends with special guests Coastline come to Oak Bay Saturday.

Siblings Qristina and Quinn are taking their music career to the next level with the release of their third album “Little Hinges” for which they have received a FACTOR recording Grant. Over the past few months the pair has worked with Grammy Award winning producer Joby Baker on the album’s 12 tracks. Still in production, the duo will be back in the studio to finish the project in late August and hope to release it late in 2014.

Qristina and Quinn continue their wave of success among fans and followers. The maturation of their music has been gradual and steady, allowing for the duo to master a sound that pays homage to traditional appeal while embodying their own youthful infusion. At the same time, their professional career has flourished to include international bookings, prestigious awards and a massive online following.

The siblings are at an important juncture in their lives. Qristina relocated to Amsterdam in 2013 to finish a masters degree in Public Health. Quinn will be leaving for Boston in the fall to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music on full scholarship.  While they continue to be busy with many projects, they are as committed as ever to their musical partnership, with tours and performances scheduled in Canada, the U.S. and Europe, well into 2015.

It’s been a long time since Qristina and Quinn performed in Victoria, and their upcoming show  will give local audiences the opportunity to enjoy their undeniable musical talents and get a sneak peek at the new album.

They perform June 14, 7:30 p.m. at Oak Bay United Church, 1355 Mitchell St.

Tickets available at Ivy’s Bookshop, Long & McQuade, Larsen Music, Lyle’s Place and online at beaconridgeproductions.com.
