always keep a song in your heart, it´s like karaoke for the voices in your head

about us …

Our story began in the spring when a huge, thick, black cloud grounded air travel around the world while the capricious Icelandic volcano erupted with all it’s might into the sky.

featured musician: KJ Denhert

Though our connection began long before we’d ever met, I first saw Ralf and Liên at the 55 Bar in the Spring of 2008. Everybody in my band seemed to know them. There was quite a commotion when our first set ended.
