Jo Little & Jared Smith sound like they belong on stage in the deep south of America, there is a nostalgic feel about their music that’s familiar even though you have never heard it before. Smith’s guitar is a well worn instrument and you can see why when he performs, the strings moan and cry between verses, tastefully showing a restraint that allows the music to speak for itself. Little’s velvety smooth and agile vocals skillfully harmonize with Smith’s more smoky and gruff tones, expertly weaving catchy hooks through songs inspired by the ups and downs of love and their life on the road. 
From blues to alt-country and soul this duo’s set ranges from foot stomping to heartbreaking. Whatever the mood, this couple have a captivating quality about them, their music will stay with you long after the last tune has been played.

Hana Fahy’s musical offerings run the gamut from melancholic blues ballads to playful, soul-infused pop ditties that will stick in your brain long after the music has ended. Syncopated keyboard rhythms underpin warm, smoky vocals, while catchy choruses are peppered with the lyrical wit that permeates Fahy’s songs.
Hailing from Dunedin, in New Zealand’s shaky southern isle, Fahy has performed extensively throughout New Zealand both as a solo artist and with her band, honing her craft in venues large and small throughout the country.
