Sunday, May 7 Full Moon Eye Chris and Kelly Pfeiffer, Music Ministry Directors. This Americana music duo is composed of Chris Pfeiffer and former Unity of SA Music Ministry Director Kelly Quinn. They have toured throughout the United States and are a favorite at Unity Churches, and were featured at the Unity People’s Convention, as well as other venues. We will continue to see other music team members periodically as guest musicians.
The Story of Full Moon Eye began at Unity of San Antonio. On April 14, 2013 touring musician and award winning songwriter Chris Pfeiffer was a guest artist at Unity Church of San Antonio, TX with music director at that time, Kelly Quinn. At that time, Full Moon Eye began.
It was immediately evident that the synergy between them, their voices, and their instruments created something new, different, and yet the same; as if one person were playing. The usually reserved Reverend Ellen Debenport exclaimed after Full Moon Eye’s first appearance at Unity of Wimberley, “Oh yes! This really works!”
Their first CD, Full Moon Eye, received two first-round nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for best song and best album in the Americana Roots category.
Influential in the album’s works, particularly the CD’s first song, “To Have and Not to Hold,” are the teachings of Vietnamese Buddhist Monk Thich Naht Hanh: “You must love in such a way that the person you love feels free.”
“Full Moon Eye knows the way to the heart. Their music comes over you softly, whispers its way in until you find yourself humming the melody. Then, you notice it has you. Their message has opened you.” ~Reverend Linda Martella-Whitsett, Vice President, Silent Unity
“Full Moon Eye is that rare and magical melding of spirits and song. Letting go of everything outside the walls of a sanctuary or concert venue is effortless as soon as the music begins. The joy Chris and Kelly express in sharing their songs is richly contagious.” ~Kit Holmes, Music Minister, Unity Church of Wimberley, TX
They just released their second full CD/album Landing. Learn more about Chris and Kelly from their website, FullMoonEye.com
