The release of the Spheric E.P in 2017 led to shows at venues such as Spiritual Bar, Mau Mau Bar, WoodFest Festival and regular appearances for Sofar Sounds London, featuring various different line-ups, each show being distinctly different from the other.

2018 lead to many more shows including two nights at Ronnie Scott’s supporting Mark Guiliana. The pair have recently been tipped as “ones to watch for 2019” by Jazz Re;freshed. Their new live track ‘Shifting’ was released in October and showcases the pair’s new sound and live energy within a record. It is in all online stores now.
