They have independently recorded and released eleven albums, and have collaborated with musicians and artists from the UK, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, Iran, and the US. Engel's music has been played on Italian National Radio, as well as BBC Radio 2, making it onto Tom Robinson's show "BBC Introducing" on several occasions. Their music has been described as "folk noir," "minimalist holy blues from another galaxy," and "sung poetry." Engel's voice and guitar stylings place them singularly on the genre-map, somewhere between avant-garde torch singer and gothic-blues artist.
