"Ever since we were kids and started playing music, we've had a yearning to create something of our own. As siblings growing up together we shared music, dreams and visions which made us curious of what would happen if we wrote music together. In the spring of 2015 that dream became reality when we decided to form a band. Daniel, Natasja and Gabbi together with Säde, who became the fourth member of our family.
We soon discovered writing music together is a very surprising process. As siblings we have a lot in common musically, but we have always had our own areas and preferences. This formed an exiting basis of collaboration where we constantly discovered new things about each other. We´ve learned never to assume we know what to expect. To make things even better we've now added the freshness of a fourth member's ideas and background. Sädes roots in the Estonian folk music tradition added yet another flavor." - Frander
