Tapia Corel & Jim Rhodes

LA-based, singer/songwriters, Tapia Corel and Jim Rhodes have been performing together as since 2009. They recently simplified their name from Partners 'n Crime, to Partners, deciding that simple is much better, and easier to remember.

With special vocal blend is reminiscent of those who share the same DNA (think Everly Bro's and The Judds), as well as a chemistry that radiates throughout their work and performance, they will often leave you smiling as you depart any of their shows.  Partners' music chronicles the bumps, bruises. disappointments, bad decisions and joys of traveling one's own road, through a mix of tempos, styles and unexpected turns of phrase and melody. 

Recent performances include the Main Stage at the Dia De Los Muertos Festival in Lake Elsinore, California, La Rebelde Winery, and a monthly appearance at Cody Bryant's Viva Cantina with The Melrose Music Review. 

Their EP "Animated."  debuted  on Americana Radio in the Top Twenty of the Roots Music Report , in both Alt Folk and Folk categories, and finished #118 in the 2015 Top 200 Folk Albums. "I'm Thankful for the Love" was the #1  Alt Folk Single for three weeks, and finished 2015 #68 in the Top 200 Folk Singles. Enough!, a driving rocker a la "Jagged Pill" ended 2015 at #78 in the same list. 

Their music reflects a blend of folk-rock, jazz and Latin influences, as well as a joyful approach to life's experiences with a "been there/done that and came back for more" attitude. Their 2015 EP "Animated," tells the story of grown-ups who have made mistakes, been redeemed, and learned many lessons the hard way -- sometimes digging in heels all the way down the slopes of change, where, when they land, discover deep rivers of love and satisfaction. Come on in! 

They are both members of the ASCAP and the Americana Music Association .
