We moved into our little home on wheels in December 2017, and decided to put an ep together with some of our songs, recorded from inside our very own Jamba (that’s the van!) over the last few months whilst on the road!
Below is our fav one buy you can check the rest out right here! The audio can also be found on BandCamp here.
We moved out of our home and into our van on December 16th to pursue full time music, it all started with backyard gigs, a campground tour and a whole heap of wedding singing along the way!
I’m delighted to share with you the most recent release of our duo Aro, this is our song – ‘A hymn of faith’. Check it out online HERE
Thankful to all the people who were involved in bringing this music to life with us- Vivek Gabriel, Nick Dow and Pascal Roggen, as well as all the kind souls who helped us fun this!
Isn’t this cover art by Huia just beautiful!?
