New Haven-based Arms & Voices is the brand new band anchored by Steve Rodgers (vocals & guitar) and Jessy Griz (vocals and keys) supported by Seth Adam (bass/guitar) and Adam Christoferson (drums/percussion) as well as occasional guest members. Their songs are a melodic, lyrical exploration into the human spirit and condition, interwoven with rich harmonies. The members of the band each have a rich history in the Connecticut music scene, most notably Steve Rodgers who was the leader of the longstanding underground band Mighty Purple that toured nationally for 15 years and released nine full-length albums. He is the founder / director and music curator for The Space and The Outer Space in Hamden, two community-based music venues recognized nationally as destination tour stops for bands of all levels and genres.
