POWERS is Mike Del Rio and Crista Ru. The duo has weaved in and out of each other's lives- running in similar creative circles in New York City and rediscovering each other's evolving art in Los Angeles. In early 2013, an impromptu writing session occurred in LA that produced a song called "BIRTHDAY". The two knew they were on to something unique, especially after a surprise call from Selena Gomez's team, who wanted the record for her upcoming album. Mike and Crista proceeded to work with Selena on "BIRTHDAY", and following these sessions the initial ideas for their new project began to take shape. Excited, they decided to hole up in the mountains of Lake Arrowhead for two weeks to refine the sound of what has grown into POWERS. The band's first release of Gimme Some is just a taste of what is to come from the genre-smashing and pioneering duo.
