This young coastal Victorian duo share dreams, hope, love and connection through their music. With Kate’s warm angelic voice and Ben’s rhythmic and passionate artistry on guitar they love playing to audiences who enjoy their poetic sound and life rich lyrics.
What was the last TV series you watched on TV?
The Walking Dead Season 5. It’s getting intense!
If you were talking to a younger version of you, what advice would you give yourself?
In life, people will come and people will go. Things will always be changing. Stay grounded and true to yourself. Follow your passion, at all times.
What is your creative process like?
Our creative process always begins with a fiddle on the guitar. Ben gets an idea for a chord progression on his guitar and from their Kate writes the lyrics. This is how all of our songs have been written.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
It would be a dream come true to collaborate with Carrie Underwood or Keith Urban. We could keep rattling off names of artists we look up to allll day! But these two have always stood out for us.
If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
It would be amazing to open a show for many artists! But if we had to choose one… lets go with Keith Urban! His live shows blow any audience away. To be a part of that night would be incredible and a real honour.
Are you finding the isolation of the pandemic conducive to your writing or is it hindering the experiences you can write about?
At the beginning of the pandemic we found it hard to get creative. It took us weeks to find inspiration and to try to understand and comprehend all that was going on in the world.
Everything Has Changed was the first song to come from this pandemic. Since we wrote that we have written many more.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
Life is short. Do what makes you happy! Be fearless. Live your best life.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
Never say no to an opportunity.
If we were to look at the artists you are listening to, who would be on your playlist?
At the moment, we have some Jordan Davis, Maren Morris, Kip Moore and Morgan Wallen. Love love love the playlist right now! It’s on repeat!
