The idea

After two years living in Boston, nostalgic of the European culture we were on our way home May 2010.

We thought of moving to London, meeting musicians, playing shows and writing our album. Did we really want to live a city life? What about traveling, this amazing source of inspiration?

There “The idea” showed up.

Couple of days talking with our families, we understood that it was the right time for us to travel. They all say “it’s now that you can do this, so go away and live your dream”. This is our dream, crossing Europe to write our first album.

This album will be different, it will be full of love, discoveries, fears, feelings, and experiences… We write about what we see and what we live. It will be, kind of a traveling book, “carnet de voyage” but in music.

We call this project  “Travel in Music”.

More than just traveling we want to take the opportunity to meet and help people. We signed up to Helpx ( and we will stop on farms every now and then. We work about 4 to 5 hours a day 5 days a week helping our host building, growing, gardening, repairing… In exchange they provide us a place to stay, food and their welcome to their life. It is all about Exchange.

We want you to travel with us, so we created this blog. Each week we will post a video showing you the most of what we see, where we are and who we meet. We’re musicians and this trip is our future album so each video will be featuring a new song, Either an original or a cover that fits best the environment.

We have a long way ahead of us, full of surprises. Destiny will bring us to places close to our hearts that we can’t wait to share with you, so travel with us… in music.

    Wow! I love what you are doing. What a great idea indeed! One can’t help but be inspired by adventure, beauty and discovery! What a gift to be able to capture and express the way you see the world with song. As always, my ears are most tickled by it. And definitely looking forward to your next upload. Keep it up guys!
