Hedluv and Passman have been friends since the age of ten. In school they won the end of year talent show with their own composition ‘The Dinosaur Dance’ with Hedluv on the piano and Passman on the glockenspiel. This was twenty years ago and since then not a lot has changed. Still trying to recreate those glory days the duo have been working the local circuit, playing pubs, birthday parties, weddings and festivals as Hedluv + Passman: Two Cornish Rappers and a Casiotone.
