"road to the fields" is one of our first songs but never had been recorded.

in may 2020 we were invited to record a song for the local

lockdown sampler project "RECORDINGS OF NOW" in klagenfurt / austria.

so we played this song in the big hall of an old art nouveau mansion and

chris hall recorded it ...


this song takes us out on the crossroads of life.

and you better keep the hands on the wheel

because perhaps the next turn is your turn ...

... it´s your turn!


our new single "rain will come" is out.

we are recording new stuff and try to schedule some

live concerts for autumn / winter ... in hope that it will be possible.
