On their extensive UK tours, they’ve played sold-out shows at the prestigious Camden Roundhouse & Kentish Town Forum.

"My Natal Maple Series Kit has a bright, lively tone and a powerful projection which can fill any venue. It also delivers a rich and vibrant sound in studio settings... it’s perfect for cutting through the multi-layered, percussive sound of Coasts."
