Engin and Josh met playing at the Middle Eastern Music Ensemble at the University of Texas at Austin in 2014. They began combining their Jazz and Rock influences with the Turkish & Arabic music they had been playing at the ensemble, as they wrote originals. You can also hear influences from Funk, Progressive Rock and Heavy Rock in their music.
Josh Peters completed his studies at the UNT Jazz program, he plays the oud, trumpet, and multiple other instruments. Engin Hassamanci played a lot of rock in his earlier years, but started playing the fretless guitar as his interest in microtonal music has grown. Serhat Bilyaz has extensive training in saz for playing Turkish folk and also plays bass. Sounds in between plays with multiple drummers in Austin, most often with Stefan Del Bosque.
