In a time where impressions are made up fresh, often and spontaneously online through social media. There has never been a time so concerned in self improvement, self image and projection. Navigating life in an honest down to earth fashion while being comfortable with who we are has never been harder. Competing with the Jones’s is now almost a job in itself.

Henry and Lance have written songs together for close to 15 years whilst hanging out as friends, sharing perspectives and making music. Their first release together was in 2007 and was titled “Zelus – High Knights” this was followed up by another release to wrap up a series of work in 2018 titled “Zelus – High Knights 2.0.” Through these formative years they have performed both festivals & intimate settings expressing their musical and lyrical craft.
Audiences have appreciated the deeper lyrics and groove of the music as an art form that resonates on many levels. In 2018 Henry & Lance embarked on a creative journey of producing songs and lyrics together on a weekly basis. This was highlighted through a podcast Lance created called “Indigo Knights.” Each week they would get together and make a song on the spot which would later be reflected upon through the podcast. The vision, concept & composition was inspired and executed on the day. This led to an accumulation of many entertaining titles later to be revisited and mastered. Fringe Mellow aims to release music from this period through to today with monthly instalments online.
