The group features guitarists John Storie, Perry Smith and Will Brahm, graduates of University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. Founded in 2005 by Storie and Smith, each of their projects features their unique style of laid-back virtuosity through expert arrangements crafted by the members of the group. Their music is regularly featured on NPR and jazz radio stations, and the trio travels throughout the United States and abroad. The group has also released seven full-length albums since 2005.

“They’re masters of their caressing, cascading sound, best categorized as chamber jazz…dexterously peppered, now and again, with Gypsy fire, flamenco zest and steel-string twang.”
