Vortex is a blend and a whirl, a yin and a yang of cultural, life and musical experiences in a dynamically moving unified voice. A visceral reaction to an end and a circular movement outward to explore the known and the unknown. It's a flow.
Listen ... ad infinitum. — Catherine Capozzi, 15 June 2011, 2:47 a.m. Boston, USA.

Axemunkee and Catherine Capozzi Boston, Massachusetts

Axemunkee is a Boston-based, instrumental rock group featuring the guitar wizardry of Catherine Capozzi.
