Tell us about yourself and your music
Jeff and I have been writing original music for ourselves and for other artists since 1995, We are both prolific writers, but together we form a songwriting team. We have recorded our music and performed our music and covers around the United States and Europe. Our music varies in scope from rock, R&B and Pop. We also write country Rock songs for both male and female singers. Our music is adored by over 33,000 fans around the globe. A huge fan base in Indonesia and the middle east as well. I cannot explain this except that we write true songs with true lyrical content.
Talk to us more about your latest release
Jeff and I are writing a while new catalog of songs to go on our next release. We are working out of NYC and Portland,Maine. We have studios in both locations and work with great engineers. Our songs are all written from the heart. The latest song is called “Freedom”. Inspired by our feelings about the latest political uprising of conservative values.
What inspired you to write this release?
We are constantly inspired by love, war and peace. We are also inspired by great musical performances and do not rely on vocoders or other forms of electronic trickery.

Not at this moment. We have 4 videos on Youtube now.
Any plans to hit the road?
Yes, we are wanting to play Japan and the far east when we are ready.

Tell us about your passions
I am newly licenced Substance abuse counselor in Portland, Maine. I love helping addicts get well by treating them as Human beings and not the lable that is attached to them.
