I was touring with GoGetters and met Ellen Krantz by a coincident. I have had an idea of forming a band,to play a mix of Rockabilly with a Country & Western flavour.

Dressed up like a bunch of Truckdrivers from Kentucky with "Daisy Duke" on vocal. With Ellen, it was "GO" from day one.Ellen is the expert on Countrymusic and I was stuck in the Rockabilly rhythm.

We started writing songs right away,and ended up with the "On the contryside" album. A mix between Rockabilly and Country-twang, played with slapbass but NO Gretsch guitar ;) Not copying the sound of the 50's,more modern.

But yet, a familliar Rockabilly aura is covering the band. During the writingprocess for the first album,just because we are so much influenced by real American folkmusic and Country & Western music, songs started to show up as more "Bluegrass" stylish kind of songs.

With Dobro and Steelguitar.All of a sudden we had material for another album. "Smooth".

As the title put it,the songs are smoother. A little bit serious.
