Over the last five years we have had the great privilege of touring across the globe, each journey shaping our music and strengthening our identity. These experiences have offered us the opportunity to make many friends, perform at iconic venues and festivals and be part of exciting collaborations. Astar (tr. journey/distance) is a multicultural celebration, embracing the music of four nations in partnership with our own. We have invited friends from Norway, Quebec, Australia and New Zealand to be part of this recording, which has been brought to life under the guidance and production of Greg Lawson.
