We are excited to introduce the brainchild that is, The Dionne Farris and Charlie Hunter Duo, DionneDionne. The project consists of two internationally celebrated artists interpreting modern standards made famous by Dionne Warwick.

Pledge to be a part of the making of the album HERE!

Charlie Hunter and Dionne Farris have planned to work with each other since they met on a Hip Hop tour working for two different groups in 1991. The inspiration for this project came in part from a mutual admiration for Dionne’s namesake, and an instant musical chemistry.

Charlie would play his guitar at soundchecks and Dionne would improvise vocally. Those special moments confirmed that a recording session would bear fruit. Dionne and Charlie both signed major recording contracts and schedules would not permit for them to collaborate during their individual promotional campaigns.

Through social media in 2012, Dionne and Charlie reconnected and got reacquainted. Charlie was on tour for his latest release, Not Getting Behind Is the New Getting Ahead and Dionne attended the concert in Atlanta. While catching up, Charlie shared his great experiences of releasing new music through PledgeMusic. Dionne was in the early stages of planning crowdsourcing avenues for Dionne Get Your Gunn and chose Pledge Music after hearing of Charlie’s success. Her project was funded and she has been touring with Russell Gunn throughout the U.S. since its release.

Hunter plays a custom bass/guitar hybrid instrument which feeds it’s signal into separate amplifiers. He helped innovate it in the 1990s, allowing him to hold down the high and low ends using an athletic fingerstyle technique all his own.
Farris brings her one of a kind vocal stylings, uncanny intonation and precise pitch accuracy to the duo. She compares singing jazz with an accompanist to the classic ice breaker exercise “the trust fall”. She feels Charlie has the ability to find and catch her regardless of where she may decide to land musically.
The time has come for the long awaited collaboration for Charlie and Dionne.

They have selected the songs written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David, Isaac Hayes, and Holland-Dozier-Holland; some of the most celebrated songwriters in the modern recording era.

You have the ability to help Dionne and Charlie attempt to fill the shoes that Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass have left behind and be a part of this fresh new album.
