Original rock n roll with a refreshing cover of Paul Simon's, "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover." Sort of like the Stones meet a female Kid Rock / Alanis.

Korpus Kristy & the Skinwalkers started in the spring of 1998 when songwriter Kristy Cepielik gained interest from a major record label in Los Angeles. She gave bass player Glenn Bassett a rough demo she made in her Pasadena apartment with a four track recording system. From that moment on she and Bassett played as often as possible, performing live and in the studio.

The first priority on the list was to record a great four-song demo to deliver to the label. The first goal was acheived and then snowballed into the quest for putting together a quality band. For the next year the Skinwalkers were a collaboration of a variety of talented, professional musicians. The band eventually split up in 2000. Cepielik continued on in the studio to make her four-song demo into a full-length CD. She ended up with three CD's worth of material tracked in the studio and an eclectic and fresh sounding 15-song finished product. She named the CD and it's title track after a short story she wrote called "The Hookah Tale".

Upon "The Hookah Tale's" completion, Cepielik contacted Bassett and asked him if he was interested in playing again. After receiving a thumbs up, she called a few more musicians that joined her in the studio, and ended up with the band that she has always dreamed of. "I like playing with friends as opposed to hired strangers, and luckily, my friends rock," said Cepielik. Glenn Bassett on Bass, Dread Zeppelin's Gary Putman on lead guitar, Mike Leasure on drums and Cepielik taking care of vocals, guitar, a little bit of piano and harmonica.

"The Hookah Tale" is available at and at the band's live performances. The CD includes talented musicians: Dave Beyer, Melissa Etheridges drummer, Ardy Sarraf of The Beatles tribute band, The Fab Four; local Southern California talents, Pat O'Brien, lead guitar, harmonica, banjo, mandolin, barotone guitar, recorder and harpsichord (to name a few); and cellist Matt Cooker who has graced the stage of the Hollywood Bowl, played with Barbara Streisand, performed music for major films such as Jurassic Park and too many awards shows to list. The list goes on, as there are over 15 wonderful musicians on "The Hookah Tale." Ninety-five percent of the music is actual instruments. Very little synthetic instrumentation was used.

The band is excited about the forth coming year and can't wait to see you at their next show!
