Jennifer and Sam began in late 2011 as a musical duo with ‘Hitherside’, as an internet band. They wrote, recorded and produced their own original melodic metal songs and videos. And the bands produced intense, emotional and high listenable music.

A self-titled 12 track debut album was self-released in 2015 and was well received locally and internationally. And now, the second album “Blue Lotus”, will be released on 28 march on Painted Bass records.
