What we do?
What sets us apart from other duos and acoustic acts is the use of guitar effects, vocal effects and looping pedals. Whilst the popularity of the looping pedal has seen a rise in recent years, their use is often confined to simple single track, single instrument loops. That's not to say there aren't extremely talented loop artists out there! Because there are!
Steve uses the Boss RC-300 3-track looper in conjunction with an acoustic guitar and Roland HPD-10 Handsonic Drum pad. The guitar signal is routed through a pedal wah, octave pedal, digital delay, reverb and EQ. Together, all this kit allows Drums, Bass, Rhythm Guitar and Lead guitar to be played giving the sound of a full band!
Amy's lead vocal is routed through the Boss Vocal Pedal which augments her ability to deliver soulful, fragile vocals as well as belting out powerful pop and rock tracks.
Both guitar and vocals are amplified using the Bose L2 PA which we both feel delivers an unrivalled live sound for our setup!
