Band founded in January 2013 by three musician brothers who realized they had never played together before. Several friends join the formation in the following years.  They begin songwriting, play as Upload-contest finalists in 2013, only months after their foundation, and participate in street music festivals. In 2015 they win Upload as best south-tyrolean band and start working on their first Album: Salvage, which is published September 2016. The band has two faces: it can perform in an acoustic as well as in an electric set, and can cover up to 5 hours of covers and compositions and with any of the two repertoires.
