New music just dropped over on our Patreon page!

Old music over on that there Spotify. Just hit 1K followers too!

We know that most of you know that buying our music on CD, vinyl, or download is vital to being able to sustain a living. But Spotify has its place because playing our music on Spotify even if you already have our albums elsewhere earns us a bit of a penny every time you listen.

One day that that might buy us a bag of chips…

My BrewDog Hazy Durham IPA arrived this morning. Might go for a drive after I drink it just to check I’m not too drunk to drive. 🙄

All the profits from this beer go towards funding the production of free medical grade hand sanitiser for key workers. Nice one Brewdog. 🙂

So far this week we’ve eaten ice cream, sung some songs and what else….? Oh yeah, moved house!!

We should have been flying back to the UK from the first leg of our US tour today. Grateful to have found a place to ‘be’ for a while and also to get to spend some more time with this little beaut 🖤

Over the past few weeks , we’ve had SO many requests for songs during the livestreams, that we’re struggling to keep up!

So how about we make a set list together?

We’ll post a poll on Facebook of all (and we mean ALL) the songs we’ve ever played, and you can help us choose a set for the next show, which will hopefully be Friday May 1.

We’ll post a poll tomorrow. Top ten songs get played!

These are very testing times for everyone.

​We just want to start off by saying that we have food to eat and somewhere to live, and for that we are very, very grateful.

​On a lesser, but significant level to us personally, we are very aware that our next 40 shows have been cancelled and at best the next 4 months worth of plans and income have been wiped out.

​Rather than dwell on it, we are both determined to turn this heavy blow into something good, hopefully with a little help from our friends :-)

​We’ve been aware of the Patreon platform for a while and more than ever it feels like now is the right time for us to dive in and give it our all. We have the enthusiasm, the time, and a number of pretty cool cover song ideas up our sleeves!

​So, what is Patreon you ask?

​Well, it’s pretty much what you’ve been doing for us since day one.

​You’ve allowed us to focus on creating, playing live, and recording music by funding albums, buying merchandise, and tickets to shows.

​The Patreon platform is just an extension of that. It allows us to carry on ‘doing what we do’ during these difficult times.

​It’s YOU guys that have always kept our heads above water, and we can only hope that what we give back to you musically, in some way feels just as important as you are to us.

​Our Patreon concept is that you sign up to donate whatever amount you want a each month.

​In return you will receive…

- Early access to monthly cover songs (one month before non-patrons)
- ​Digital download of monthly cover songs (patrons only)
​- The first to listen to new songs as they’re being written (patrons only)
- A monthly video blog (patrons only)
- A CD with all the music created during this period (patrons for the full duration only)
- Our deepest gratitude

​The duration of our Patreon will be for as long as it it takes for us to get back out there playing live again. However, you will be able to cancel your subscription at any time.

​We just want to give those who have the means to be a Patron the opportunity to do so, and to thank them for keeping us going during these crazy times.


​Lots of love

​Ray & Sian

So we finally made it home.
Never been happier to see this little fella come bounding out to love all over us! 💜

We were hoping to stream another show this week, but technology has let us down. We’re working to fix the situation, and will update when we have it all sorted.

In the meantime, be safe and hug your loved ones, as long as you live in the same house! X
