Randall funke did not hear angels’ voices the night he met Katie Stuart, but he was engulfed by music just  the same. He remembers the occasion very well: A struggling musician, he had gone to the River Cat Grill in Rowayton in hopes of finding work when he saw a glowing blonde on the other side of the room. He struck up a conversation with her and very quickly it ran very deep. They had a dozen things in common — the same craziness for art, the same history of unsatisfying relationships, even the same birthday. By the time he hit the sidewalk, he was transfixed.
