About

The band first came together two years ago when Dawa Drakpa (lead guitar and vocals) played the song "Can't Buy Me Love" for his friend Ugay, and proclaimed that it was his own creation. Luckily Ugay Tsheri (vocals) didn't believe him, but he was inspired to start a band with Dawa and Dawa's brother Dorji . Dawa and Ugay were students at The Royal Thimphu College, and Dorji was still in high school, when they decided to audition for "The Music Spotlight" on BBS2, the Television program that gives new bands a "spotlight."

They were chosen for the show and officially launched their music career. Shortly after the BBS show premiered they entered and won a music competition and met one of the judges, Kinley Wangchuk, the owner of Mojo Park and Radio Valley. Kinley Wangchuk was impressed by the three boys and invited them to play at Mojo Park, one of the only live music venues in Thimphu. There the three met Sajan Sherpa (drummer ) and Tashi Namgel (bass and rhythm guitar).  

The boys played non stop at any and all venues that requested them,  including the Taj Hotel on New Years Eve 2013. That year they partnered with Aine Carey, and  Mstudio to record their first studio single and music video for the Beatles song that started it all.  The video was finished in February 2014, exactly 50 years after the Beatles legendary appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in America.

In a tribute of gratitude to their musical heroes the Beatles, their Majesties and their first mentors in Bhutan, the band chose this Beatles song to cover in their own unique style. The song premiered on Kinley Wangchuks' show on Radio Valley on March 14, 2014 and the music video will premiered March 24 on BBS2, Music Spotlight, which included a benefit at Mojo Park for their friends and fans to watch the premier of the video on Music Spotlight and hear the band play live. Proceeds from the benefit will go towards the production of their first album, "Born to Late," a project in collaboration with Aine Carey, Bhutan Culture Company and MStudio.
