First off, in case you can't tell we're brothers. We were both born in Sydney, Australia and we've been around music basically since birth. Our Dad was a music promoter and record label owner and introduced us to an eclectic variety of live shows during our growing up years, from acts such as pop star Amy Grant to heavy-metal group Stryper (Good stuff!). For both of us music has always been the natural backdrop of our lives.
In 1991 our Dad got offered a job in Nashville, TN. So with our mum pregnant and our four siblings (so that makes six, without including the baby on the way) we grabbed sixteen bags and moved to the US... Since then, apart from school and playing sport we've travelled with various artists all over America and the world singing BGV's and running different aspects of their live shows. We're now 23 (Joel) and 20 (Luke) and have over the last year and a half been writing, performing, and working on music as a duo.
Music is more than just a gig to us. It somehow has the uncanny ability to speak to the heart, and we believe it should be used to convey a positive message. Life is a journey full of ups and downs and we want to write about the real things that we're going through and hopefully others in our generation will be encouraged that someone else struggles with the same issues that they do. We also want to write music that resonates with people... music that speaks about real life issues, whether that means telling about our honest struggles, asking unanswered questions, or talking about relationships. The truth is that we write what we're walking through at the time and our hope is that this will be an encouragement to others and something they can relate to.
