    Silhouette will be our last CD so it is an emotional one for us.
    Due to the realities of streaming and the demise
    of the CD as a format it will no longer be financially viable in the future, so it is the end of an era for us.
    Every musician on this album and their brilliant performances exist because of the generosity of you dear friends.
    When you hear the whole album we hope you will agree it is a worthy time capsule. The list of all the people we need to thank is too numerous to fit on this page but we thank you one and all.
    A special thanks to Doug Edwards, Purl Retsina & Juan, Paul Jackson, Catherine Wishart, Roy & Marion Nicholson, Matt Barletta, Keith and Rachel Milne, Rike Kullack and Maureen Cahill. We would also like to thank Elly Mantzaris and John Durr for the wonderful artwork and pressing of every CD we have made and to Jim Blackfoot and Linda Nagel for the great mics. We could not have made this album without the huge assistance of the world class musicians who played on it.
    This recording would also not be possible without many generous contributions, both privately and from our Indiegogo crowd fundaiser. We can’t thank you enough.
    Nina Vox & Tony King

Fetch me my comb and I’ll play you a song
Bring out the spoons and we’ll all sing along
We’ll make something stronger
Than the sum of the parts
And make up for what’s broken inside of our hearts
Once in a life you meet people
Around which your whole world resolves
And the midnight to dawn revolutions
somehow got everything solved
and sometimes the thread of a friendship
Is invisible as you grow old
But it won’t break with the strain
or go rusty in the rain
cause you know that it’s made of pure gold
yeah you know that it’s made of pure gold

They’ll give you a nip for your nightmares
And a hug when the grim reaper knocks
And shoehorn a little more time for you
That was never really there on the clocks
I’m blessed with all of my friendships
And you’re as good as it gets
So don't rush for the last train
Til we’ve sung away the pain
And the moon turns us all to silhouettes
Yeah the moon turns us all to silhouettes
And they’d lie under oath for your family
And give you the last sip from the well
And save you from the worst things about you
And light up that road back from Hell
And they love your old beat up piano
That sounds a lot like you feel
There’s something about a smile
as the ships goin down
That’s stronger than any known steel
Yeah that’s stronger than any known steel

Beautifully Mad Sydney, Australia

Breathtaking original music reminiscent of the beauty of James Taylor, some honey from Melody Gardot, a lyrical spice of Cohen washed down with some Waits-like humour. A musical flame that licks at the heels of Folk and Jazz
