Describe Your Sound

Soulful Roots to upbeat reggae. Beautiful tones and beats delivered with melodical, funked up lyrics.



Ria Morris


Playing gigs in the local Perth scene, we all met up through different jam sessions and liked the vibe of each others' playing. Music has a funny way of bringing the right players together at the right times in your musical journey.
