Hello, Decca Records. We prepared this EPK for you to consider our music and what we've achieved in the recent two years since our first release in July 2020. Our two albums represent mainly soul, singer-songwriter, groove, and pop genres. We come from and currently live in Slovakia, but we're willing to move, release a new record, and we'd be honored if you'd be open to giving us a chance to do so on your board.

OUR NEXT STEPS

We wrote our 3rd album and now we're preparing the recording, new collabs, and concerts. We started a production process on an art movie based on the music of our next upcoming album in cooperation with rising stars of Czech and Slovak filmmakers, whose movies were already premiered at Cannes festivals, Karlovy Vary film fest, and others. 

In cooperation with Bella Concerts, our concert booking agency from Vienna, which has an artist roster filled with names such as Pat Metheny, Mononeon, Hiromi, Herbie Hancock, and many other great world-famous artists, we're working on touring, and based on that, we will perform in Carnegie Hall this year in November.

Thank You for your time and consideration of what we create. We have only been on the scene for two years, but we think that despite the difficult pandemic situation, we have managed to achieve quite a lot of remarkable success, even though we have invested only our resources into the whole creative and PR process without the help of anybody else involved. Now, we feel, we have to take another step and move forward, try to get on the European music scene, as in our country we don't feel the best ground and support from people working in the recording business. We don't fit their low cost mainstream taste. We're willing to move and work hard on this.

Thank you for spending your time with our music.

If you'd like to know more, please, let us know.
