The contrasts and compatibilities in their sound as they effortlessly weave from naked to polished, impassioned to reserved, showcase an exhilaratingly dynamic songwriting partnership. The Reading based duo, consisting of Sam Brett (vocals/guitar) and Jim Crowder (vocals/keyboard), was formed one night in Oxford after walking past the city’s ‘Circus Street’.
