A while ago, I wrote a post inviting you to reach out to me through Google Voice. As you may know, GV allows you to receive and manage voicemails just like e-mails. It also attempts to transcribe your messages using speech recognition technology. Many of these messages are seriously entertaining, so I thought it would be fun to use them to share behind-the-scenes type stuff from some of our favorite artists with you. Geeky stuff aside, I'm seriously excited to introduce this new a'tris tradition to our 'Meet Our Friends' series, courtesy of Aric Jorgenson and Leia Manuel from Tragic Chemistry.
I met Leia at an Open Mic I started in my hometown, Charlottesville, VA, and was immediately blown away by her voice and her music. Leia's vocal super powers combined with Aric's equally awesome chops and songwriting skills make for some seriously captivating tunes. One of my favorite songs of theirs is called "Holiday" and Leia and Aric were so kind as to leave us this message about it.
