In the car that drove me down to MLove two young women were sat in the back of the car with me, feverishly chatting to each other and writing in a notebook. I struck up and conversation, enquiring what they were doing? Songwriters, ahhhhhh I see songwriters going to conference about mobile….. er of course you are. So I asked why were they going to a mobile conference in the middle of nowhere? Because they were performing stupid! Doooh.
Sophie Madeleine, left and Hannah-Rei, right, form the duo that is known as Rocky and Balls. As you can see these are demure looking ladies – let that not fool you – and although they both sing like angels, there is craft, humour and more sauce in their song writing than you would get in 10 Heinz sauce bottles.
Armed only with a Ukulele, and a Kazoo, well in fact we all had Kazoo’s, we were regaled with the Beard Song, (now I have to grow one, and live in hope) and two of my favourites, I heart you online, and Love Cake a Baking Song – apparently.
All these songs were touching and achingly funny. So Sophie and Hannah, I heart your songwriting and performing skills. And recommend that more people come and look you up, listen to your music, buy your music and book performances – the world needs you. Here is my fave song for your delectation. As separate artists, they also cut the mustard to a high standard.
