JR's voice has a uniquely powerful and timeless quality that I find simply captivating - coupled with a flawless rendition by Olly on grand piano I consider myself lucky to have been present to capture the performance on film in such an intimate setting.

I invited JR and Olly to play at my event Sunday Sessions at Bar 48 in Oval - and they didn’t disappoint! JR has a rich and powerful voice - on top of that he is able to connect with the audience with his charm and infectious personality. Olly is sensitive and soulful on the keys - together they are a class act and a real crowd-pleaser. I invite them back every time.
