Neil McCarthy : « I grew up in Cork, Ireland, a city steeped in story telling, song writing and musical collaboration across all genres.
My main focus was on writing original songs and playing live, I was swept up in the glorious homegrown wave of
Indie Rock that took over Ireland in the late 80s and 90s, and performing my own songs I often played support to bands such as
The Cranberries, The Frames, Frank and Walters etc .
From the late 1990s onwards music has shared my attention with my career as furniture designer
and ebeniste which has been exhibited in galleries worldwide» .
Gabi Swiatkowska: «I was born in Poland in the stern landscape of grey communist blocks.
I was raised by crows, mostly, because my parents had flown off to America when I was little.
My sister was hot so I had a bit of a peek into some cool records procured at black market by hopeful boys
- This, probably, is the most relevant of musical education I’ve had».
