LiveWire was born in January of 2015 when Lorie, Lynn, and Katie were looking to branch out and try new voice parts. They asked Jessi to sing bass with them and she said yes! After 10 months of learning music in a long-distance quartet, they pulled off an unexpected win at their International convention and became the 2015 Queens of Harmony Incorporated!
Lynn Blakeney (TENOR) is happily married to Jim and has a grown son Joshua. Her passion is coaching quartets and choruses and encouraging singers to be the best they can be. Lynn is a certified judge in the Performance Category in Harmony Inc.
Katie Taylor (LEAD) is married to Ricky, and they have two sons Gavin and Zachary. Katie is a K-12 Music Teacher at Alexandria Central School. She enjoys directing musicals, coaching choruses and quartets, and giving private voice lessons.
Jessi Nasto (BASS) married Tony just last year, and together they are raising her beautiful daughter Nova with another one on the way! Jessi works as a property manager in Ithaca, NY. She and Tony are also excited to start up a mixed chorus in the Ithaca area very soon.
