About Us

We started writing with other artists by accident. Both being part of a great musical community in London we were already gigging with, shared ideas and jamming with some outrageously talented people. Our ethos was always the same, organic writing sessions where truthful, heartfelt lyrics were mixed with melodies that came from the soul. Things have remained like that but since we began writing with and for other artists everything else has moved at such a fast pace. We are also enjoying it more than ever!

“Talent, feeling, knowledge, intuition and experience with a genuine will of keeping the music real and passionate – this makes Chris and Rod a very powerful combo of writers.”

JP PILON @ WAX Studios, 2015

Recently we have enjoyed releases from Liam Bailey (‘It’s Not the Same’ – Polydor) of Chase and Status fame heading across the water to America. Another American release (‘Lost’ – Die Mason Die, Metropolis) being synced in Hollywood (on The Host soundtrack). More syncs on award winning Surfing Film Bella Vita (Chris McDonald – Soldiers) and working with multi-platinum award-winning record producer and engineer George Shilling (James Brown, Bernard Butler, Blur and Frank Turner) to name a few. Our latest tracks with Sony ATV artists are getting great feedback so you must forgive us for feeling like we haven’t had a chance to catch our breath!

“You never know what to expect when going in with new people for the first time but this session was the best one I’ve had.  I’m so glad I said YES!”
