Two Brits and a Canadian make up this trio of long-time musicians. Dave Moore originates from London, Bob Oldfield is from Liverpooland Tim Boulter is from BC and all have a history of playing rock music from across the ages in various bands in various countries. 
These days, now calling Vernon BC home, the three are usually to be found playing original acoustic folk and roots and developing their new found acoustic interest in and around the cafes, wineries living rooms and back yards of the Okanagan Valley. In 2013 they played some dates in Australia and have loose plans to visit the UK soon.

All were heavily exposed to the great singer songwriters and acoustic sounds of the seventies. Classic artists such as James Taylor, Crosby Stills and Nash, Neil Young, Phil Keaggy, Bruce Cockburn and more, feature heavily on the iPods of all three and so a few years ago an idea was born to re-explore a mixture of the singer/songwriter genre with leanings into roots and folk to see what emerged. What came out was an intriguing blend of acoustic styles and harmony vocals that catch the ear. Audiences tend to see and hear the CSN influence quite quickly.

Not being brought up in a Canadian environment, Dave and Bob are loving the exposure to some of the more traditional elements of Canadiana and Americana styles that were not prevalent in the UK.

 The CD was co-produced by The Creeks and Kelowna producer/musician Andrew Smith.

 Most percussion was played by Dan Oldfield (Andrew Allen, Greg Sczebel) with additional percussion and pedal steel played by Zachari Smith (Folk duo Andrew and Zachari Smith)
