The Innocence 的魅力,只要一听,便会耽溺其中不可自拔;担任主唱、钢琴、吉他、弦乐/风琴的 Karen Peris,拥有如小女孩般略微尖锐、却又蕴含深刻情感,回转自如的优美清澈嗓音,负责吉他、鼓、合音的 Don Peris 则擅长以简单却余韵无穷的空心吉他,酝酿出清新有如晨曦朝雾的音乐,甜美绝伦、却又带著清淡哀愁的旋律,充分传达出民谣抒发情感的特质。

Biography by Steve Huey
Centered around the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Don Peris (vocals, guitar) and Karen Peris (vocals, guitar, piano), Lancaster, PA, natives the Innocence Mission crafted a tasteful, politically correct brand of collegiate folk-pop similar to Sarah McLachlan or 10,000 Maniacs (in fact, the Perises appeared on Natalie Merchant's 1998 album Ophelia). With a rhythm section composed of bassist Mike Bitts and drummer Steve Brown, the Innocence Mission released their eponymous debut album in 1989; Umbrella followed in 1991. Thanks to the advent of the adult alternative radio format, the Innocence Mission were able to break out to a wider audience with the release of their third album, 1995's Glow; material from the album appeared on the soundtrack of the film Empire Records and on the television show Party of Five. The Innocence Mission remained quiet for several years, as the Perises made guest appearances on albums by Merchant, John Hiatt, and Joni Mitchell, in addition to having their first child. The latter experience greatly informed the group's fourth album, 1999's Birds of My Neighborhood, which witnessed the departure of drummer Brown, leaving the group officially a three-piece. The following year, the Innocence Mission released a limited-edition devotional album, Christ is My Hope, on their own Innocence imprint; in 2001, the group moved to What Are Records for Small Planes, which featured some songs from the Birds of My Neighborhood sessions that didn't make it onto that album. Befriended arrived in 2003 on the Badman label.
