The duo tour extensively. In 2013 they were invited to tour New Zealand as well as playing a string of dates across Europe that have taken them from street festivals in Croatia, Germany and Italy to a circus tent in Austria. They regularly gig throughout the UK and are touring New Zealand again in 2014.
Adam says, "Everything we do is about maximising the sound and capabilities of the acoustic guitar and ukulele together when we play live. Our style has evolved from a lot of playing and experimenting over the years with strong influences from country, folk, blues and jazz".
Their sound has been described as a mix of Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, Debbie Harry and Ry Cooder with a modern Nouvelle Vague twist. Memorable live shows can feature their versions of anything from 'Ghost Town' by The Specials to Pink Floyd's 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond'.
