Izzy Mohamed started singing in a band called Cultural Cocktails in 2001 which disbanded. In 2003, Izzy was asked by a friend to join their band Escaping Monday to play bass. Even though she didn’t really know how to play back then, she picked it up. That band disbanded once again as half of the members went overseas. Not long after that, Izzy joined Ziel to play bass and at the same time she started worked on her own songs. Some of her current material are from her poems written back then. Listen to Izzy online:

Otam (and buddy Jason Novak) began jamming in May 2006 using just a mic condenser, a minidisc recorder, one long neck acoustic guitar and one classical guitar. They both recorded their songs in mp3 format (available online at at the patio with some birds tweeking, kids bicycle bell, noisy cars, pedestrians and small noises from the kitchen. Otam is well known in the indie scene and has performed at numerous gigs around town.
