I heard my first song of theirs a few days ago. It started as a classical rendition of Beethoven's Für Elise, only to morph into an upbeat jazzy tune of epic awesomeness. I'm using all the technical music jargen, you see.
Unfortunately they're not on CDBaby which; if you'll pardon the crappy pun; is a crying shame.
