Jan Krist & Jim BizerMIDWEST URBAN FOLK
Jan Krist & Jim Bizer Jan Krist & Jim Bizer listen

Jan Krist and Jim Bizer hail from Detroit, justly famous as Motown, but home to myriad musical influences. It was here that they met and made music together while still in their teens. After separately establishing their reputations as performers and songwriters, Krist and Bizer have joined forces as a fun and formidable duo where the sum is definitely greater than the already substantial parts.
