Fate played an extremely vital role in the formation of the band after the three artists met for the first time on a park bench in New Jersey. Years have passed since their first meeting and they have so far successfully established an extremely loyal and supportive fanbase.
The band’s third album, Find Light, was the first of their album to be recorded in a dedicated studio, meanwhile they self-produced and created their first two albums, Somewhere New and A Folded Letter, in the basements, bedrooms, and rented cabins of the trio.

Besides showcasing their own talents, they also organize several Open Mics for their fans to watch free of cost sitting at the comforts of their home as they watch the band perform along with several other talented artists.
