Taking influence from the likes of Robin Trower, Aynsley Lister and Jimi Hendrix as well as some of the more complex elements of modern progressive music, they put an emphasis on the song writing over the playing, creating catchy songs that have something for everyone.

The band released their debut studio EP Breath Of Fresh Air in January to critical acclaim, with the band reaching the final of Sound Clash 2009 with their song 'Blues For The Blues' and receiving airplay on radio stations as far and wide as the US, Canada, Holland and Australia, along with live dates including shows with acts such as Aynsley Lister, Eddie & The Hotrods and the Danny Giles Band.

Their new album 'Extender' is due out in 2010. It features live favourites such as Terra Firma , Feeling Fine and Living For The Weekend and there are a few rough mixes and live versions of this new material on their Myspace page and also on YouTube, along with some tracks from their last CD.
