The Album 'Outside the City Way of Things' was released in October 2009. One of the tracks was selected by BBC Introducing and made it onto the Radio 1 playlist in March 2011. ("If ever there was a song to drink a pint of cider to, that was it......Absolutely gorgeous!" Fearne Cotton)

"This is a lovely album of songs which are wittily written, artfully arranged and niftily played. I'm a big fan!" MARK KERMODE. "Absolutely lovely" BOB HARRIS.

“Song-orientated, lots of acoustic instruments, emotions and energies from outside the city way of things. The class of the writing, the energy and the not-bowing-the-knee to the most obvious influences really do mark these guys out as something above the average.” BATH FRINGE FESTIVAL.
“Wonderful, accessible songs enhanced by a truly warm stage presence. One of those great bands that subconciously have you smiling and tapping your feet as soon as they play. The audience reaction was fantastic and I would recommend everything about them” BREWHOUSE THEATRE AND ARTS CENTRE, TAUNTON.
