In the short time that they have been together, this genre-hopping trio have gathered rave, critical reviews and a burgeoning army of fans and it is only going to get bigger and better from here. Mixing blues, jazz, soul and folk music with some extra and unexpected world music references, this is the band you need to counter the feeling that everything has been done before or that the modern music scene has stalled somewhat.


“Although on paper you would have to describe them as an acoustic folk and blues fusion, in reality they are much more than that. They are soulful, dexterous, effortlessly cool, and musically economic, they make every note and lyrical line count and are the perfect band to restore your faith in creativity and originality”   Sounds Around Town, The Swindon Advertiser
