' The misconception is that the band is all optimism but more so,
the lining of the music is sung of the flickering glimmer in the
darkness...' It's a record of beginning...or loss... it's
journey music; through life and the bits in-between we travel and go
'We learnt a lot with this recording and know this isn't our best,
as that's always yet to come' Always writing, recording, listing and
playing, getting better than yesterday, and playing like there's no

It's all about the Music.
