The simplicity of the sound and feel of this debut album and The Sidemen takes us back to the enjoyable and uncluttered folk era of the 60’s. A genuine contribution to the genre of acoustic music for sure.

As a result, the duo’s close-knit harmonies and shared sensitivity provide the impetus for that engaging embrace and a tender touch that never once falters throughout.
