Christopher Bingham and Sue Tinney started as a duo in 1997, and eventually released Gaia Circles, Secret Voices and Evolve, and Vitus Dance . Eventually the band included sometimes as many as 11 players. All of Gaia Consort’s cds found critical acclaim in the major Pagan magazines and a fair number of “mainstream” music journals as well.
Crowdfunding their music before it was a term , their cds are as much a product of a supportive community they are an individual vision.
Backing Bingham and Tinney are some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest musicians. Gaia Consort’s current line up includes Larry Golding violin, Sunnie Reed viola, TJ Morris drums, Jay Kenney, keyboards, Betsy Tinney, cello, and Dan Mohler on bass. Guests on Vitus Dance include SJ Tucker on backing vocals, Felicia Dale on hurdy gurdy, Eliot Grasso on ulliean pipes, Seattle Symphony cellist Roberta Downey and Trillian Green flautist Ben Klein
More than 20 years after they started, Gaia Consort music continues to land on playlists all around the world.
