Turvy Organ
Turvy Organ
Turvy Organ Started by Ilya Litoshik in the summer of 2010 Austin, Texas. Over the years Turvy Organ would add many elements through found sounds, cassette tapes and dollar "CASIO'S," that make it the Psychedelic Indie Rock group it is today.
After moving to Denver CO, Ilya LItoshik teamed up with Paul Simmons and Adam Simmons from Common Anomaly, Beau Schwarz, a writer from Florida and Zoe Simmons from Pockets.
Meagen Svendsen swims creative seas like a natural…and as the lead singer/songwriter of Avifauna, she brings listeners closer to their essential animal core.
- Westword Magazine

An insanely deep, and often dark and honest love letter to Mother Earth, Avifauna’s The Gyre is a dreampop narrative of intense emotion and a topical call to action for the future of our planet.
- Marquee Magazine

Avifauna is a husband-wife band out of Denver, Colorado. Rooted in an Electro-Folk blend of atmospherics and hypnotic rhythms and harmonies, their sound is centered around singer-songwriter Meagen Svendsen’s “angelic vocals” and brute lyrical narratives. (Marquee Magazine).

Reminiscent of the British electropop bands of the ‘90’s, the members of Avifauna paint lush tones over theatrical landscapes, comprised of electronic keys swelling over funky linear drum beats and colorful guitar lines.

The songs on their debut album “The Gyre” (2017) are inspired by the two years Svendsen and husband Robert Treta (drummer) spent building a house on the edge of the ocean and jungle on the Pacific coast of Mexico, and by Svendsen's passion for nature and the environment.
Tiffany Christopher
Tiffany Christopher
Tiffany Christopher is a singer/songwriter/guitar rocker! She has a unique sound that pulls from many different genres of music. Her songwriting is both soothing and invigorating while the groove is rhythmic and strong. Her energy is captivating and her voice is undeniably stellar.

With vocal influences as varied as Ella to Ani it is no wonder Christopher’s fans sport dreads just as often as button downs and ties. Moms come to dance with their daughters to the unique mixture of rock, pop and blues that Tiffany throws at you. With vivid imagery, smoldering sexuality, and impressive instrumental chops Christopher’s music will lull you into her arms then turn around and rock you.

Aside from her wide-range vocals, one of the first things you notice when watching Tiffany perform is her expert ability on the guitar. Not many female songwriters sing beautiful songs while playing incredible guitar (acoustic or electric). She also plays ukulele, drums, bass, and keys, which come and go throughout her show. Tiffany has great rhythm and is an accomplished performer who holds nothing back. When the dynamic is strong, everything she does on stage pushes the audience to the edge of their seats.

You can tell Tiffany is an experienced performer by the way she interacts with the crowd, and it is easy to see she is doing what she loves. She makes you feel like you are part of the show with her storytelling, off-the-cuff interaction, and her ability to stay loose even in an intimate setting. The emotion pours out of her from one song to the next, and you feel like you have really experienced something when you leave.

Tiffany grew up on a horse ranch close to the Mississippi River in Galena, IL. Her father and brother played old country songs around the house while she was young, which she claims was the biggest inspiration for her to begin playing music. She played drums in the high school band, sang in choir, and was writing songs on the guitar at a very young age. Tiffany went to college at the School for Music Vocations in Creston, IA and upon graduation moved south to Springfield, MO. She formed a band and began touring nationally after independently releasing her first album, Alpha. Since then, she has released two more albums and recently put out her first music video featuring her new single, Salty Sweet. She has written over 100 songs.

Tiffany has been performing non-stop since she was sixteen, while managing every aspect of her own music career. She is a self-taught recording engineer/producer, and looks forward to expanding her career in the music industry.

“A stunning display of passion, talent, and creativity. Tiffany’s stuff is so damn real it’s hard to take your eyes and ears off of her. Very, very few can express the human condition as Tiffany can, and then leave a crowd feeling better for it. Don’t take my word on it, take the word of the folks that matter: the audience. Accolade after accolade at every show come from twenty-something females to fifty-something males.”
-Harold Wieties, of George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville, Arkansas

“One of the biggest motivations for me is seeing all types of people digging the music and the message. The whole reason I perform is to bring people together. ” TC

“She can pick up a guitar and write a song, then
pour it on to a crowd with her trademark energy.”
