New York-based singer-songwriter Jamison Tyler Lyle and LA-based Danish-born producer, songwriter and singer Tim McEwan met at a co-writing workshop in Hollywood, California back in 2012. As an inspiration for their retro sound, both cite the movie soundtrack of "Drive", starring Ryan Gosling. Vintage 80s synth is the underlying sound of their music, similar to that of "Jump" by Van Halen. The duo collaborated and the results were two singles "WeMoveForward" and "Gloria", that would resurface two years later in 2014 in their debut EP "Days of Thunder". They followed it up in 2017 with the album "Nocturnal", which went on the best seller list for several weeks on the music distribution website Bandcamp and peaking at #17 on Billboard's dance/electronic charts October 2017. The duo often play sold-out shows which include notable performances at San Francisco's DNA Lounge, the Globe Theatre in LA, Brooklyn, NY at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, plus other numerous stops throughout the US and Europe.
