Musings from the Motherland

London Liberty
It’s week 4 of my "back to the motherland" trip and I’m awfully glad to say, I have finally lost my American twang... Although I have to admit that on several occasions have asked for the check and have taken the elevator (translated to the bill and the lift) Yes my UK friends are all to eager to correct me and take the piss a bit.

we won an international songwriting competition in Nashville for one of our songs, managed to secure US working visas, and then met someone who was willing to offer us a starting base - a place to stay here in California. We had a few friends over in Los Angeles and it struck us as somewhat of a 'no brainer'. 

What do you miss most from home?
Well, London is our home; we have family and friends and so many memories growing up, spending time in different areas of London. We miss them all - just being able to wander the streets, crossing from on…
