When Paul Hayles folded his band, Lastwind, at the end of 2013, he moved to France and wanted to write music that reflected all the music he had loved over the last 40 years. And he wanted to find a songwriter/lyricist. He found one on the internet, Kenneth Higgins, an Englishman who had been living in Bangkok for 15 years. They met in Thailand after Paul had sent him a lot of tunes and decided one the ones for a first album, Come Together, which was released through bandcamp.com in 2015.
Paul plays keyboards/samplers, writes the music, plays the music, arranges and produces the recordings. Kenneth writes the lyrics and sings lead vocals. The added brilliant Thai guitarist, Nueng on lead guitar.

We are in a state of rage against the comparatively few people who run this world and their allies the banks, lobbyists and politicians. We hope our songs can make people understand that they are free and can unite to stand up against these powers that be.
