Here is a standard bio written in the third person :)

Chris & Meredith Thompson are "powerful performers with a natural warmth for the live concert stage" writes Tom Lounges in the Beat. Best known for the unique blend of their nearly identical voices, the Thompsons weave vocals, flute, guitar and percussion together creating a sound that is genuine, beautiful, and moving.
