We got word that a band was in town that was just our sort of thing. After causing Jackson a hectic day of work, he managed to wrangle a gig for the lads to go along side others that they were in town to play. To say we were impressed would be the biggest understate since “Houston, we have a problem.”
The five lads coming from every corner of the globe, produce stunning harmonies on perfectly crafted songs. We welcomed them round with their wide selection of instruments to record a few songs with us for the Flat Sessions, the largest and loudest we’ve had so far round to the flat will certainly be one to watch for the future.
