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.

                Stay tuned for New Album Details and Spring 2018 dates!

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".


L-R Em, Simon, Jonathan, Dave.
