Swedish pop music with west coast touch …
Hal Marabel started the project late in 2001 but needed a singer. He placed an ad on the Internet and by pure chance, Magnus Bäcklund (now in duo FAME after winning the Swedish talent show Fame Factory (FF) 2002 and Melody Grand Prix 2003 was out surfing the net and stumbled onto the ad. Magnus contacted Hal and they met to plan for the project. They recorded the CD between February-April of 2002.
However, when Magnus won FF in late 2002 and joined the duo FAME, Hal was forced to replace him. At the end of the 2003 version of FF, Hal was tipped about Dennis Radoicic, an excellent allround singer looking for a new project.
Hal contacted Dennis who was keen to join the project.
