Ever since we were kids and started playing music, we’ve had a yearn to create something of our own. As siblings growing up together we shared music, dreams and visions which made us curious of what would happen if we wrote music together. In the spring of 2015 the dream became reality when we decided to form a band. Daniel, Natasja and Gabbi together with Säde, who became the fourth member of our family.

We soon discovered writing music together is a very surprising process. As siblings we have a lot in common musically, but we have always had our own areas and preferences. This formed an exiting basis of collaboration where we constantly discovered new things about each other. We´ve learned never to assume we know what to expect. To make things even better we now got the freshness of a fourth members ideas and background. Sädes roots in the Estonian folk music tradition added yet another flavor.

After working with the band only a couple of weeks we got the privilege of hosting an international competition in Estonia, where we were awarded for our music. After this first step we did some touring including being invited as guests to play at the Swedish embassy in Guatemala. Meeting an audience in different countries made us take the step of recording our first album, containing our first chapter together.

2017 we released our first album.

Since then we’ve had exciting times touring around the world.
