We both have a long history of playing in bands and writing music, we wanted to put our knowledge and experience together and create a new sound that everyone can enjoy!
Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
We write mostly chill hip hop, we want people to have fun and be able to relax to our music. Our first single highs and lows is about never growing old and always being able to leave and hit the road when you want.
Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
Throughout the years we have faced a lot of challenges playing in bands, selling tickets promoting our music. It’s a tough grind promoting metal and heavy music so we wanted to switch it up and be more accessible to people.

We haven’t hit any real radio play yet, but I see it coming in the near future.
