“Over the course of the evening they seamlessly flow through rock, blues and dark carnivalesque sounds reminiscent of The Doors and reference the electronica of Kraftwerk. The sheer quality of the musicianship makes these shifts in tone seem effortless. Parker excavated beauty from the bleakest corners; her wit and words, a brilliant retort to life’s cruelty and Honor breaks through, reaching a state of total honesty in her performance, making Parker’s words shine like coals, her voice is silk and steel; her commitment, total.” Billy O’Hanluain writer and contributor to The View, Arena and The Arts show.
