"A close musical dialogue between a lap steel guitar and piano, creates a distinctly tongue-in-cheek, cabaret inspired sound.

With a completely natural work-flow and artistic encouragement between them, the duo are able to create without pretence, unafraid to experiment, to play, to enjoy. The outcome is organic and bracingly honest."
