    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

lyrics

We’re here today to bury Harry
© Copyright 2016 T.King

We’re here today to bury Harry
He’s no longer living in the here and now
He’s now married to his lawful wedded Wifi
Apples terms and their conditions were their vows
In the constant updating of his status
He’s no longer aware of who I am
His life was taken tragically by Facebook
On the corner of Twitter and Instagram
He used to dance and loved a conversation
Long ago before he got online
But now he LOL’s instead of laughing
His eyes are on the screen and not on mine
We’re here today to bury Harry
He was always very happy in his day
But now there’s no reaction when you can poke him with your finger
‘Cause he’s typing to a stranger miles away.
We lowered his body into his favourite chat room
With his password and his user name
Surrounded by his favourite emoticons
He had million followers
But to his funeral
No-one came
We’re here today to bury Harry
We’re here today to bury Harry

about

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
