BASS / AWARD WINNING PRODUCER / MUSIC PRODUCTION
"Errol Ross. Dad!
One of my earliest childhood memories is noticing a constant shine that used to always be present at home. The light bouncing off of my fathers gold & silver discs on the wall - that he was awarded for the production & sales of the Ska album: The Selecter. Whilst growing up throughout the years, these discs became a permanent & constant reminder to me that success was possible.
My first real memory of sound was around the age of 2 years old, curled up underneath my dad´s chair, listening as he played the bass guitar. The feeling was warm & comforting. From those early days, I knew music was for me! My father has been an incredible mentor & always has an abundance of knowledge & advice to share.
On to the next chapter of our music journey together! Love you xxx" - Carlene

GUITARIST / GUEST ARTIST
"Bjorn, some friends, & I attended Musikmesse, Frankfurt in 2015, & I was super hyped to be there! I remember walking around on site with 100´s of people around me, & in the middle of the madness, all I could hear in the distance was the soul of Shian & her guitar. I followed the sound & there she was, humbly playing her ass off! I was lost for a minute! :)
We connected, exchanged details, gave music & kept in touch. Now, it´s our time.
Love you babe xxx" - Carlene
