After the release of their debut Album ‘It’s Better To Travel’Jackson left and they have been a duo ever since,using many different session musicians for their eleven studio Albums to date,the latest being the 2017 release ‘Almost Persuaded.’
Their musical style is very much influenced by the Pop and Easy Listening sounds of the 1960’s.You could say they were Bacharach and David for the 1980’s.
