Hi Kathy, thanks for the visit, glad you enjoyed Hello and hope you like the rest of our work also. Nice to meet another Raven!!!
We're in the middle of recording, a really busy schedule right now, so can only promise to listen to your songs next week... we will.
My partner, Satch, is from SA, he lived in Durban a long time ago. Played a lot with Steve Fataar back in the days...
Anyhow, baie dankie en alles van die beste :)
