"Between playing electric, acoustic and 12 stringed guitar Michael Trew pulls you in with solemn storytelling with a folk style. But this isn't just a folk band, this is an exciting remix! Pulling from what seems to be different musical backgrounds, you'll get sounds like rock, tribal beats, folk, and orchestral instruments that they weave together to create a completely unique experience. this group is fresh and exciting. During their set, I sometimes felt like I was watching a play or a musical, pulled into a story by their diverse layer of styles that they effortlessly seem to have at their disposal." - Tony Hammons - Rain City Collective - Seattle
