Bob first met Gillian when the world was young - well, in the early 2000s - when they played some shows in the South Island. They were a popular duo, with an obvious musical connection, but couldn't be bothered doing anything about it. They bumped into each other a few times over the years, but managed to avoid playing a single note, finally regrouping in 2016 when they found themselves living on the same landmass less than an hour's drive apart. Conditions were perfect; they both now had complicated lives and were far too busy with other projects to be able to focus on a new duo.
The old musical connection was still there and they immediately decided to quickly record and release an album; Race for the Sun will be out in late 2019, having taken less than 3 years to get onto. Having already played festivals in NZ and Australia, they embark on a tour of Canada and New England in October and November 2019 - with a stop in coastal Oregon - in support of the new record.
