Unity of San Antonio Music Team

Music Directors of Unity Church of San Antonio, music duo Kelly Quinn (vocals/piano) and Chris Pfeiffer (vocals/guitars) are Full Moon Eye.  It’s hard to call them a duo when the music comes from one breath, one body, one love.... one song.
Chris and Kelly’s unique, velvety vocals come together in such a way that it’s often hard to distinguish one from the other. Their first CD, Full Moon Eye, received two first-round nominations for the 57th Annual Grammy Awards for best song and best album in the Americana Roots category and are past Posi-Music Award nominees.
Born in Dallas and Austin, Texas, they both record and tour professionally and have journeyed multiple musical roads that now has them on one main highway.  
Chris and Kelly’s favorite thing to do is disappear into the desert of west Texas and the high desert mountains of Colorado, go within, and find the truth to write the songs they record and perform live. They are most grateful to be a part of the Unity People’s Convention for the second year in a row!

“Full Moon Eye knows the way to the heart.  Their music comes over you softly, whis-pers its way in until you find yourself humming the melody.  Then, you notice it has you.  Their message has opened you.” ~Reverend Linda Martella-Whitsett, Vice President Silent Unity
