Describe your sound in 3 words
Haley: A) Soulful B) Reminiscent C) Americana
Craig: A) infectious B) Eclectic C) OG Soul
What inspired the concept for “Records Back”?
C&H: Life events and revelations that force us to stand up for ourselves and take back what has been stolen from us. Not about just physical belongings, it’s about getting back time, love and dignity.
How did you achieve the 90’s hip-hop plus jazz sound in the engineering process?
C&H: our producer Chris Collins at Crimson Road Studio, without question. His pedigree included playing 90s EDM, Ska, and later he owned a jazz club in New Orleans. Absolutely reached in our heads and laid down what we were hearing.
Favourite album of the past year?
H: Older than 2022 but discovered in 2022, Maddie Zahn “You Might Not Like Her”
C: Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats “The Future”
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
H:Artist challenge: letting people see the deep things so I can forge a connection
C: Exposure. The effort of trying to be visible and promote on social media and to events, festivals and venues.
What advice would you give to your younger self?
H: I don’t care what anyone else says, LISTEN TO ME. You are the most important being in your life. Get rid of the ones that say otherwise. Get rid of them NOW.
C: Ditto. Pursue your dreams against all odds and against the well-meaning advice of people who will settle for your mediocrity.
You’d give up making music for…
H: NOTHING. Music has always been my soul language, and I will be thinking of songs with my last breath.
C: Ditto. Nothing and no one. Music is me.
