The group had their debut performance for the Perth Jazz Society at the Perth International Jazz Festival in 2015. Launching their debut album in June 2018 'Organised Chaos' - the album featured on RTRFM as the local feature album, and the group nominated for Best Jazz Act at the 2018 WAM awards.
The quartet has performed around Perth, at the 2018 and 2019 Perth International Jazz Festival, as well as In The Pines 2019, and the 2019 King Street Corner Pocket Jazz Festival. 'Organised Chaos' was nominated for Best Instrumental Jazz Album at the 2019 Australian Jazz Bell Awards and the track 'Be Like Abraham' was nominated for Best Jazz Work of the Year.
