The duo began playing in venues on the west coast of Scotland, performing a wide range of material from Rock, Pop, Funk, as well as instrumental pieces in the style of Gypsy Jazz, Bluegrass and Classical. Soon they began writing their own music and in 2007 they released their debut EP “Not Enough For an Album” comprising 4 original tracks. That same year they won a Danny Kyle award at Celtic Connections.
Also in 2007, having met fellow musicians Angus Lyon & Ruraidh Campbell at the Orkney Folk Festival, they went on to form the critically acclaimed group The Halton Quartet. The band received widespread praise for their debut album “Based on True Events” in 2012.
In 2013 the duo released their own debut album “For the Many”. Making full use of the recording studio, as well as some of Scotlands most in-demand session musicians, the project soon took on a life of its own. Even prior to its official release it has already garnered much praise from respected musicians.
“You guys play great, the music is intrinsically beautiful and interesting, and the arrangement/orchestration is fantastically done.”
