Born and raised in Papua New Guinea, Brent Joseph Sause aka Lil Trigarow Swag first moved to New Zealand at the tender age of six. At church in Wellington he sang regularly and discovered a love of music through an unlikely source – his mother's gospel alarm radio.
The family moved back to Papua New Guinea (PNG) when Brent was ten years old and his musical talent grew; he learnt to rap for a school project, picked up piano and guitar through books and taught himself to record his efforts on an old computer using Fruity Loops.
This passionate hobby became his lifeline, sustaining him during a major upheaval in his formative years – a move back to New Zealand to finish off high school. At the age of fifteen he was boarding at Mount Albert Grammar School in Auckland, the country's biggest city.

LIFE HAS A FUNNY WAY OF TAKING US TO UNEXPECTED PLACES
It stops and starts, twists and turns. One minute we're totally in our comfort zone, the next we're being tossed in to the deep end. That has certainly been the experience of Jared Wrennall and Matt Ruys.
Matt and Jared got to know each other through mutual friends in the local music scene. And, being in a similar head space both mentally and spiritually, eventually decided to write music together. Both agree something "very natural and unforced happened" when they sat down for their first writing session.

It was clear soon after that they already had one...
