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 🖤

We need some questions to help fill that deathly silence in between our songs tomorrow night.

Always wanted to find out what colour pants Ray wears? Now’s your chance! 😉

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

We made it home! 😁

We are so, so grateful to everyone for their kindness over the last few weeks. When you’re so far from home and things start turning to shit, it gets kinda stressful! People have literally taken the weight off of our shoulders by inviting us into their homes, sending us donations, and sending us their positive vibes.

It really does feel like we have an extended family on both sides of the pond. “Blessed” doesn’t really come close XXX

Big shout out to Dave for giving us somewhere to quarantine for a couple of weeks in Cirencester before we head back to our house and finally get to see our little brown dog. 🖤

We’re planning on getting over our time zone change weirdness and then coming up with a way to move forward.
It’s a difficult time for all musicians and live music lovers right now. We will either find a way, or make one. 🙂

Stay tuned, and be safe.
Love y'all. X

That moment when all the flights back home are cancelled apart from the one you’re supposedly getting on… heart in mouth.

As you might have guessed, the rest of our tour through to the end of April has been cancelled. We’ve been blown away by the amount of people that felt the need to donate their ticket money to us. Your kind support is greatly appreciated. 🖤

We’re currently in Virginia slowly making our way back to Nashville. At the moment British Airways won’t move our flight forward because we weren’t due to leave until May. We’re just hanging out hoping they will eventually give us the option to move it so we can get back to our little dog and wait for this madness to blow over.

Stay safe, wash your hands, stop buying toilet roll you don’t need, and look after each other 🙃

Thanks for showing up Boston! You were awesome. Huge thanks to our friends Crowes Pasture for letting us share the stage with them 😊

Things are getting a little difficult on the tour front for us in light of COVID-19. We’ll keep y’all posted of any changes to the schedule.

We got back on it with a beautiful house concert in New Haven CT last night. Thanks to all that came out! 🖤
