About the band

The boys bring a sense of humour and humility to everything that they do, living to serve others through their music and their ministry. As well as their song-writing and performances, they write for magazines and their own blog, and partner with a number of charities on issues that stir their hearts.

Their sound and style is classically British, an irresistible mix of rock beats and catchy melodies; high-energy, solid rock-worship that leads the audience into a deeper inspiration of faith and motivation to live for God. Their second album ‘Closer’ was released in May 2012, following on from their award-winning debut album ‘Airtight’.
