“Chrys and Momo” is a Hamilton-based band fronted by Chrysalene Teo and Momo Raickovic. Audiences can expect to hear an eclectic mix of cute acoustic love songs, harmonica heavy folk songs, and fun, infections indie-rock songs. Playing instruments that mimic their size, this couple's ukulele-guitar dynamic will leave you grinning from ear-to-ear.
Their much-anticipated premiere EP “Taste//Touch” (recorded at world renowned Grant Avenue Studio in Hamilton, ON) was released on May 4th, 2019, featuring new originals and covers with a twist they can call their own. Described as “strong, creative pop music that deserves repeat listening” (Ric Taylor, The View), “Taste//Touch” was a successful first release for Chrys and Momo. “This Little Piggy”, a political folk original, reached over 10,000 plays on Apple Music within the first week of the EP’s online release. Their follow-up single, “Love Is Free”, released in July 2019, introduced a new indie-rock element to their repertoire.
Now playing as a four-piece band, joined by Lazar Raickovic on drums and Ayman Saab on bass guitar, Chrys and Momo are continuing to play shows of original music in Hamilton and in the Greater Toronto Area.
“It’s strong, creative pop music that deserves repeat listening.”
