At the age of 14, Chris Litz started on his musical journey. Within a few years, he was playing the local music scene in Austin, TX. By 19 he was involved in three different short-lived projects. He felt that something was missing from the music. After two more dead-end projects, it was time for a change. This was a chance to focus on learning, writing, and developing an identity as a guitarist. After a short break, a new heavy dual guitar riffing machine formed. Chris pushed for the music to progressively become heavier, but the band split up after several years due to typical musical indifferences. Next, it was time to experiment with the industrial side of metal which lasted for a year or so. And the familiar feeling of something missing crept in. He then began writing in unexplored territory that would now be classified as new age music. This is where he learned to let go of writing constraints to standard song structure. After several years metal was pouring out into his writing again. And from lessons learned in past projects, this time it would be all about writing without boundaries. In late 2016 Chris had an epiphany to combine his brand of new age music with his passion for metal into a unique blend. Soon afterward Seventh Legend was born.
Carrie Stephens has been writing songs since she was old enough to form sentences. Her debut as a singer was in first grade when she played the littlest pig in a musical production of the Three Little Pigs, and it was then her love for performance was born. Throughout middle and high school in Portland, Oregon, she joined multiple choirs as a Soprano, Mezzo-, and Alto, and even had a brief stint as frontwoman for a punk band. Carrie forayed into experimental music while at the Evergreen State College, before taking a break to jaunt around the country. After landing in Texas, she first focused on her acting career, but never truly gave up on her rock star dreams. She spent a short time as lead singer for red dirt rock band Donkey Island, later forming electro-dark-jazz band Cara Van Thorn with a fellow DI alum. Carrie joined Seventh Legend in 2021, fusing her chorale past with her current signature vocal harmonies, having finally found a home in one of her favorite musical genres.
