If you liked Slave Ambient, your love it! Wagon Wheel Blues is also a great record! If you get a chance to see them live do it!!!!

This EP ‘(who will be) here to hear’ is a brilliant introduction for the duo; it leaves you begging for more. The EP consists of four songs the title track ‘(who will be) here to hear’ is very soothingly epic and is probably… Read more
