Armure de Ruisseaux
In January of 2007 both of these artists joined together to form Armure de Ruisseaux, and have started producing their own unique music blending electronic, rock and classical styles with drum and bass. The music is all written and recorded by Charlie Armour in London. Then it is shipped to Allen Brooks in The United States, where the vocals are written and recorded. At that time it is shipped back to London for mixing. We would like to thank Jamie Armour (singer and bass player of Third Summer), for playing acoustic guitar on our new track "REACH". We would also like to thank Tampa, Florida's own CHUNK, for rapping on our newest track "MUSIC". All songs are recorded demos and the guys are shopping for a label deal right now.
