COMPOSER & ARRANGER

Keri CHRYST

Jazz

Following in the footsteps of her grandfather — Robert W. Tayek of the Cleveland Musicians Union, Local #4 —Keri has spent the past 2 decades honing her skills as a composer and arranger.
With guidance and collaboration from some of the U.S.A.'s most in-demand musicians — Tom "Bones" Malone (Blues Bros.),  Kirk Garrison (Lt. Dan Band), Don Owens (Northwestern U.), Mike Kocour (Arizona State U.) — she is paving the way to provide fresh and inspiring music for bands and vocals across the globe.

Keri is a marvelous singer, composer and arranger. As an educator — she not only helps young musicians become better, she helps them become complete.
