After obtaining Bachelor of the Arts degrees in Music and Communications, the duo moved out to Los Angeles, California where they honed, discovered, and fine tuned their unique sound. Presently in Nashville,Tennessee, the duo strives to keep the authentic aspect of music alive with great hopes of making a change through their music, actions, and beyond.

."When Did The Music Stop?" (Tell Me)

Tell me,

Where were you when the music stopped?

When time well spent wasn’t held by the hands of the clock.

When the right to bear arms was a HUG not a fear,

When dinner was served and time was shared.

When smiles and laughter weren’t miles away,

Where and when did our hearts get lost?

When the value of another was more than…

No more hands claps and stomping feet

The original

The unique

Speaking in tongues and  singing with rigid voices  

Substance layered within words and dimensions

Forget authentic we want to see the monkey dance

Molding and unfolding within us forever as brothers and sisters in Life and Light. I see the power to ignite LOVE. True in its essence, I see and feel the presence of the…
