By infusing soul with the lyricism and the groove locks of hip-hop, mixed with a hint of jazz, sprinkled with on the spot improv and the adding essence of funk with their known for the presentation of the talk box and Key-tar; this unit is the definition of true artistry.

The couple received an Individual Artist of the year award from the State of Maryland and has recently had their hit single 11:59 in Netflix Original Movie “DUDE” starring Lucy Hale.
