Based on the South Coast of the UK, multi-instrumentalists Pete and Jessie incorporate an array of instruments including lap steel, banjo, guitar, piano and fiddle to create a sound that is “distinctly unique” (Nexus Music Blog) and “Charmingly Country” (Craving Country UK) that is reflected in their incredible live shows and their debut album 'Add Another Minute'. "If you long to be whisked away to another world where organic sounds, innate musicianship and classic Western aura blends with strong songwriting, contrasting voices and sweet harmony, this album ticks all the boxes and then some." (Neil March, Trust the Doc/Fresh on the Net)
