With Welsh heritage, Sadie's love for singing is instinctive. Born in England and raised in Australia, Sadie's distinctive voice and versatility led her to perform in bands, theatre and cabaret. From singing jazz & blues with pianist Michael Kenny to world & roots music with The Romaniac's, Sadie has performed with accomplished musicians enriching her spellbinding vocal ability.
Born in Scotland and raised in New Zealand, Jay grew up in a musical family immersed in traditional British folk music. For many years Jay has been a member of the PENMANS, a four part family A-Capella group. This collection of brother, sisters and father have entertained at folk festivals and concerts in New Zealand. Their album "Homemade Jam" is a celebration of the traditional folk genre.
Sadie and Jay have been performing as a duo in and beyond the Brisbane folk and festival scene for the past five years.
