New Video – Once Upon A Time

"Once Opon A Time" ft. John Sebastian - New Video Out Now!

We wanted to celebrate being on this planet for a quarter of a century today with releasing a new video.

It's literally the best birthday present to ourselves because not many things make us happier than sharing our creative endeavours with those that fancy listening. This one being an original song "Once Upon A Time" off our album ORANGE.

We filmed this video during our trip to Lanzarote (The Canary Islands) earlier this year with our family and "Papa Rudi" was doing all the filming. Which brings us to another reason why today is so special.

It's also Father's Day (at least in the UK)! If you are still lucky enough to have yours in your life, we hope you get a chance to let them know what they mean to you. Our dad will always be the #1 but you don't have to tell yours that 😉 Happy Father's Day to all dad's out there!

The song and video once again features our dear friend John Sebastian (from the Lovin' Spoonful) on the harmonica.

Remember his song Younger Generation? Especially his performance of it at Woodstock? Since "Once Upon A Time" also speaks about the value of generations working together, we think him playing on the song all ties in beautifully.

This is now the 3rd and final video we had filmed with John, but we want to say again how wonderful it was to work with him and have this project span generations. "Cause we've been told, that young and old can learn from each other ..." <3

Lots of love you all and stay groovy,
Mona & Lisa

Wow!! The visuals in this video are stunning! Congrats to Papa Rudi for his inventive use of drone camera. The sentiments expressed in the lyrics are so hopeful - thank you Mona and Lisa for re-capturing what the counterculture of the '60s was all about! You are so well informed and talented, we love your work so much! Mark ❤ and David ❤


Woodstock had it's influence, for sure...the '60's also brought you "the pill", a man on the moon, and in the US it meant the Vietnam war, civil rights and more. This certainly captures a part of it! :o) Thanks


Have always said that finding you strictly by chance on Youtube was one of the nicest things to happen to me in a musical vein. I enjoy your covers a lot but like your original stuff even more. Keep up the good work. I am 66 and enjoying all of it.

Will yall be performing with Mike in St.Louis?


No Keith, sorry! If you're referring to the live dates at the end of our collaboration video with Mike, those were his shows only. We'd love to visit the States again though ... one day for sure 🙂

A quarter of a century? Me, at 63 I'm riding hopelessly to 3/4 but, anyway, I love your fresh music. You're keeping an spirit of music that will belong to History. Thanks a lot.


the sound, the 12-string-guitar-work, your harmony-singing, the melody going throgh the surprising changes,it just sends shivers up and down my spine.
