Thyra Resume

The duos major strengths is to adapt to the atmosphere and stay as a background if people are for example eating dinner and engaging in conversation or step things up a notch towards the end and it has happened more than once that people actually been dancing to us...:-)))
Also sometimes the duo can do more interactive things like a live musical quiz if a client wish for it.
The repertoire is wide and ranges from old school soul like:
What's going on
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Signed Sealed Delivered
to more modern covers like:
Corinne Ray "put your records on"
Amy Whinehouse "tears dry on their own" and "rehab",
Other songs you find on the repertoir are
"so sick of love songs and "all along the watchtower, Alicia Keys "if I ain't got you" Bob Dylan "To make you feel my love"
all this and lots of more in our unique sound.

Göran on the guitar use a loop pedal and other effects which makes our sound fresh and unheard. He creates a sound and atmosphere loop and can play solos. Karin also play the guitar so sometimes they ad on my guitar as well to get a variation.
The duo updates their repertoire all the time
