Members may be familiar from the UK country scene, having collaborated variously with The Worry Dolls, The Wandering Hearts, Logan Brill and Megan & The Common Threads / Megan O’Neill.

An album co-produced with James Simpson of current BBC Radio 1 darlings Indoor Pets was the fruit of friendships forged “playing non-stop requests in sweaty London clubs”.

Early radio support recently came from eminent broadcaster Baylen Leonard (BBC Radio 2, Chris Country).

The band are available for booking as a full electric 4 piece, semi-acoustic 3 piece with percussion, semi-acoustic duo and acoustic duo.
