A critically acclaimed band of 
mavericks who have mined the music of the spheres finding something sounding like a jam between The Blues, World Music, U.S. Folk and Grunge. Compared to artists as diverse at The Dandy Warhols, Neil Young's Crazy Horse and Low.

What others say; "A pronounced but un-histrionic soulfulness.. commendably uninterested in fashion.. songs are passionate, humorous, communal sounding expressions, engaging" - Oliver Arditi. "These guys really do pack a punch" - Stoke Sounds. "Beautifully crafted songs with bite and edge"- Mind, Body & Boogie festival. "Mesmerizing guitar skills" - WillsImmusic Blog. "Powerful lyrics and absorbing melodies" - Nigel Stonier, "Rare vocal tone" - Radicals Rising. "Powerful voice, good-time backing vocals" Here Comes The Flood. More in 'about us' & 'press reviews'.

Every note with passion.

Interestin' facts;

Jonathan lives on a boat, was a zoo-keeper at one time & also met the Dalai Lama unexpectedly.

Emma ran away to join the circus for a few years (no, really).

Simon's house is like a lab, he is working on perpetual motion & alchemy among other things.

Dave is officially described as a 'Ranger, author, druid & Rock God'.

Hayley ran a butterfly hospital as a child, and brought many of the critters "back to life".
