The band started with front woman Miss Nic performing at open mic nights and over the past 12 months the band have grown both musically and as a group into a full time performing set up. Their own musical style is probably best described as Blues Americana with lots of slide guitar, harmonica and a combination of blues, country and folk melodies.
