One Minute Gillian Hamilton and Jennifer McLeish
The songs on this album are a collection of some of our favourite songs that we have sung together over the years. They include songs from female artists who inspired us to sing harmonies together and who had some of the biggest albums of the 1990's. We both greatly enjoy singing, and it has been our source of amusement and fun since we were children. We are particularly drawn to unusual harmonies, and have tried to incorporate these into our tracks. We would like to dedicate track 7 to our friend Chrissie White who passed away in 2010.
