From “My Room In The Trees” (2010)
The Innocence Mission (stylised in lower-case on all releases since 1995) is an American band centered on husband-and-wife songwriters Karen and Don Peris. The original group, including Mike Bitts (bass) and Steve Brown (drums), was formed in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the early 1980s when the members met during a Catholic school production of Godspell. Although all members of the band have contributed musically, Karen Peris is its principal writer.
