"One of the most high profile original acts in town. Their music is a blend of old school jazz a la Billie Holiday and new school trip-hop, is continually evolving and dynamic."
Mark Sanders, Weekly Planet 2005

the outline of our sound truly been formed with a great line-up .The expression and growth over the years is remarkable..
Currently the four unique musical backgrounds are what create this eclectic sound that gets the crowd grooving. The foundation is layered with Phil Anderson on drums and percussion whose steady rhythm explosively intermingles with the thumping grooves and space-age bass lines of bassist Allen Holsberg. Rolling across the keys and sweeping pads, newest member and keyboardist, Jeremy Egglefield''s acid jazz riffs give the band''s sound a more groove vibe using a lead synth to capture those experimental frequency bends. Together, these guys bring the sound back to the audience''s feet, making standing still impossible. The unique sound is fused together with Shannon Fortner''s hypnotic, powerful vocals, capturing the audience with her lyrical soundscapes, then pulling them in with her sensual jazzy undertones.
"She pulls you in as she flips through her notes like a calm preacher about to unleash an impassioned sermon, Fortner, remaining calm with her sophisticated sensual voice forming the centerpiece of the band both with melodies and solos. Well chosen influences are obvious the shout whaling of BJork, the cinematic British-ness of Portishead''s Beth Gibbons , and soulfulness of Simone."
