    Walking To A Different Beat is drawn from authentic audio, visual, text diaries kept from the very beginning detailing every element of their entire journey. We witness their exciting signing to major labels and VIP treatment laid on by those labels and we witness them being indifferently dropped by the same labels.

    Their journey gives a first hand, rare and unique, insight into the music business "how it really works and how it really is"

    "This is not a sob story; it's about creative endurance, highs and lows, ducking and diving to survive – something to which many people will relate and which is frequently hidden behind the mask of people's perception of what making it in the music business is about. We were literally spat out because of circumstances that had nothing to do with us and a lot to do with a faltering music industry. I would see so many people alongside us that had released a single or an album (making it into the charts) then they'd be dropped and they had no one working for them. It was just the cruelest thing to watch" Ria.

    As the Band's journey unfolds it demonstrates that there are many benchmarks for success and clearly illustrates how our response to situations, and not the situations themselves, defines our onward journey.
