A tour to the UK followed; performances in London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival were highly acclaimed. Journeys has been receiving great reviews and radio airplay Australiawide through community radio stations and worldwide through an increasingly international audience.

Out of Abingdon’s reputation continues to grow as a captivating live music experience and unique voice in Australian music and 2012 is looking to be a big year for this Brisbane-based duo, already including performances at the Basement in Sydney and the Brisbane Jazz Club.

An upcoming live album release and international tour are planned for August/September including a return 10-day season at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
