This trio creates personal music, evoking strong reactions of audiences. Like spirituals maybe, played by an atheist, a vegetarian and a mussel man.
The musicians all contribute with original compositions. Their different backgrounds and individual vocabulary connect miraculously natural. Reijseger, Fraanje and Sylla got to know each other well over the past years and shared many adventures, both as a performing trio as in other projects, such as film scores for Werner Herzog’s ‘My Son My Son What Have Ye Done’ and ‘Cave of Forgotten Dreams’. Playing together became addictive.

In february 2013 the trio released it’s first trio cd/vinyl ‘Down Deep’ released by Winter & Winter.
