Black Handed Kites started as a time killing project. In the best sense possible. Teejay had some ideas he worked on with his banjo and as soon as Richard came along things started falling in place.

We would literally take an idea to a full song in a matter of hours. Since the release of the first single, Up, on international and local TV ads, we realized that people enjoy the music so we carried on doing it and now we’re finishing the first album.

It’s simple. We do not make music for anyone except ourselves. If we don’t enjoy it, why would anybody else…?

Teejay – Main Vocals, Multi-Instrumental
