Steven and Michael had each recorded their debut albums at a studio owned by a mutual friend. It was this friend who suggested their respective talents put together would make a good record.
Two years later Steven and Michael met by phone and talked about the possibility of recording. Michael began working out some song ideas, sent them to Steven to add his flute, and that became the album Ancient Elements.
Steven and Michael found common ground in their mutual respect for the spirituality of the Ancient ones, and the Elements of the wondrous earth around them. Their music is highly influenced by both.
