Put traditional music of the British Isles, Sufi, classical, Latin jazz and art rock all into the proverbial sonic blender with Keleren Millham’s opulent voice and evocative lyrics, and you’ve got an addictively singular concoction. And Michael Millham’s intensely intricate and physical finger-style guitar work has been known to make audiences’ jaws drop… Their intimate performances are unforgettable, and their sound is truly uncommon among Spokane acts -or anywhere else for that matter…”

“The songs were so emotional that I was trying my hardest not to do the HARD CRY. Music is such a magical experience and this was definitely the case. Words truly cannot express the beauty of this experience. I am so honored to have been able to share the moment with Michael and Keleren. Question: Have you ever heard such a beautiful rendition of “Over the Rainbow?” Priceless!”

“There really are no words which adequately convey the beauty of their music-you need to hear it for yourself.”
