Looking for an outlet from the confines of "gun for hire mussos", Atlanta guitarist Steve Cunningham and bassist Rob Henson have formed a musical gumbo duo to express a level of artistry rarely utilized in their careers as in-demand sidemen and session musicians. This duo offers a unique instrumental approach where they present familiar melodies and songs of all styles in a way that sounds fresh, exciting and at the same time understated. You might say it has a way of "sneaking up behind your ears" and giving you a most welcome surprise!

He also writes and records with the Atlanta indie band Telegram.
