the innocence mission

The Innocence Mission (stylized as the innocence mission on all releases since 1995) is an American folk rock band centered on husband-and-wife singer-songwriters Karen and Don Peris. The group, including Mike Bitts (bass guitar) 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 main writer.
