Abbe and Hannah are passionate about the music they write and play and their live performances are charismatic and memorable. “Their music may be heavily influenced by folk, but their vocal interplay takes its cue from the soul stylings of superstars Destiny's Child and En Vogue.” (Coventry Telegraph). “Each member of the band is a clear talent in their own right, but it is the combination which creates the real magic, magnifying their individual strengths.” (Along The Floor and Up The Wall).
They feature regularly on local radio, have done intimate pub gigs with Ed Sheeran, Billy Bragg, Chris Woods, Paper Aeroplanes, Ryan Keen, Karima Francis, Cole Stacey, Rodney Brannigan and Jake Morley, played over 150 gigs in 2 years, a dozen festivals this year and are looking to concentrate on festivals for next year.
