“It’s best defined as roots music with many eclectic touches, where you’re as likely to hear a bouzouki as a bass guitar, yet where the songs are always central to proceedings.” Nick Dalton, journalist.
“The music and the voice and the lyrics all work together to convey a bittersweet, sad optimism that I find so appealing… romantic without being remotely saccharine and refreshingly grown up.” Elizabeth McGovern, actress, Downton Abbey, Once Upon a Time in America.
They have now returned to their real love of writing songs for themselves.
