Chris Standring (born 1960 in Buckinghamshire, England) is a British-born soul jazz guitarist known for his heavy use of 1970s-style musical nuances. Before launching his own solo career with his 1998 album "Velvet", Standring represented a third of the band SolarSystem, a one-shot project that combined elements of jazz and hip-hop.

His "Hipsway" was co-produced with Rodney Lee in 2000. "Groovalicious" followed in 2003, then "Soul Express" in 2006. Love & Paragraphs (2008) spawned the title track hit radio single. Chris's 2010 album 'Blue Bolero' spawned the hit single "Bossa Blue" which went to No. 1 at contemporary radio across the USA and stayed there for nine consecutive weeks. Bossa Blue was named 2010 Billboard contemporary jazz track of the year.
Electric Wonderland is released to the world March 20, 2012.
Don't Talk, Dance! is released on March 20, 2012.

Lauren Christy is an English singer-songwriter and music producer. She is a part of the writing trio The Matrix.
Christy was born in London, England. She studied at the Bush Davies Ballet School as a child, before she decided to become a musician.
By age nineteen, Christy had become a solo recording artist. What began as a passion for dance had evolved into a professional journey into the foray of music. She was signed to EMI Publishing and achieved a recording contract with Polygram Mercury records. In 1994, she received an American Music Awards nomination for Best New Artist. Her song "The Color Of The Night" also garnered her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Song in an Original Motion Picture.
Five years later, Christy reinvented herself as co-creator of The Matrix. Alongside creative partners Graham Edwards and Scott Spock, the trio wrote and produced Avril Lavigne's debut album Let Go which included three international number one hits – "Complicated", "Sk8er Boi" and "I'm With You" – selling 20 million copies. "Complicated" led to the Matrix trio winning the Ivor Novello Award for International Hit of The Year, and they garnered seven Grammy nominations – including Song of the Year in 2003 for "Complicated" and again in 2004 for "I'm With You" along with Producer of the Year. Christy is also a two time Juno award winner and a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award recipient.

The Matrix has sold over thirty million records and has worked with artists such as Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Shakira, Liz Phair, Korn, Twisted Transition, David Bowie, Christina Aguilera, Rickey Martin, Britney Spears, Hilary Duff, Ferra, Busted Three AM, Tokyo Hotel, Rihanna, Grayson Chance.
After twelve years of being behind the scenes, Christy recently performed again, singing three songs live to 12 million viewers on the Ukraine X Factor.

Her recent solo work includes but is not limited to Enrique Iglesias's worldwide number one "Tonight I'm Loving You", Chris Medina – "What Are Words"; Kelly Clarkson – "I Forgive You"; Timberland – "Runaway"; Jason Derulo – "Breathing"; Neon Hitch – "F-U Betta"; Headley – "Kiss You Inside Out"; and new artist Jamie Dee and Liam.

In 2014, she once again became a Grammy nominee for her work on Chris Brown's song, "Time For Love" on the album "X", nominated for Urban Contemporary Album Of The Year.
