Enchanted Rock
the Band


Enchanted Rock, started in Austin, Tx. in 1993. Originally it consisted of 3 roommates, Jerialice Arsenault, Chris Maresh and Art Kidd. This trio still records together and is working on a new CD, Prodigal Daughter, which is being produced by Mark Hallman.

Miss Arsenault is a musician, songwriter, recording artist and engineer. She plays guitars, synth, and bongos. Her songs became the foundation for the combo. The group began to play in Central Texas and performed with other musicians for various shows. Miss JA appears solo as well.

The material consists of what Jerialice calls “enchanted rock”, a poetic, sinewy, Holy spirit dance. Since moving to the NW Hill Country in 1998, she has added a slice or two of hillbilly and country. The music is mostly original and is performed at wineries, churches, clubs and festivals.

Jerialice was in seminal Austin bands, Chickadeisels and The Beat Meters.

Art Kidd, who has played with everyone and their dog, he even played with God once (George Burns). He began his career at Carnegie Hall with a Tuba ensemble.

Chris Maresh
is simply the best bass player in the world!
