ABOUT

Through passionate, soulful, and emotive vocals, accompanied by vulnerable lyrics, bright harmonies, and massive pop hooks, they have made a name for themselves, making it impossible to ignore. Despite their surprisingly young age, they have already played a large number of concerts and have collaborated with many important names on the music scene in Slovakia, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, or Germany. Their musical versatility is also confirmed by the fact that they arranged and produced the whole album themselves. Their ability to deliver ingenuity to their expression sets them apart from today`s music and fashion-style trends, lets them stand out, and makes them sound so special. 

 

Proving to be great talents, they won several prestige music contests, supported legends like Dianne Reeves, Stanley Clarke, or Candy Dulfer in the biggest Slovak festivals, and they were awarded in the Radio Head Awards poll and received The Best Debut Of 2020 award. 

 

Kristin and Jakob both studied at Jaroslav Jezek Conservatory in Prague where they started performing at local jazz clubs and festivals. In 2017 they won in the New Faces of Slovak Jazz contest and were awarded the Discovery Of The Year award. During the autumn of 2019, they won the Bratislava Jazz Days & Jazz Start-Up contests and released a single SKIES. 

                                                

Their debut album Sleepin' With The Lights On was released on the 7th of July 2020. During the summer they presented the album at many Slovak music festivals such as the renowned international festival Viva Musica! or Trnavsky Jazzyk. After the debut release, they became a part of Bella Concerts' artist roster. The album received very good reviews not only on their local scene but also in Italy, the USA, Netherlands, and the UK. In November 2020 the song I WISH was awarded by Tatra Banka Foundation Prize For Art.

 

They also performed in Paris, Brussels, and at the renowned jazz festival Jazz à course et à jardins 2019 in Lyon and currently are invited to many European music festivals.
