From George Jones and Tammy Wynette to Richard and Linda Thompson, male-female duets are one of popular music's most delightful permutations. And the Austin-based duo of Christine Albert & Chris Gage easily slot right in with the best. Their vocals intertwine like two passionate lovers -- the two are a couple offstage as well -- and their performances are an upbeat celebration of songs and the art of singing them. Albert's honey-drenched voice is one of the best in Austin, gracing everything from a CD-length salute to her Swiss-French roots to Bluebell Ice Cream ads. The South Dakota-bred Gage is a multi-instrumental wizard who has played with Roy Clark and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and his rich tenor complements Albert's voice like a graceful bow. Their two CDs and stage shows include everything from memorable originals to choice cover material. An evening with the two is a fun and heartwarming experience in which music truly is the food of love.
