Russ and Morten first met through improvising together in New York on a hot summer day in 2013.
Two years after, on a very cold february day, Russ and Morten went to the recording studio of engineer Paul Wickliff and recorded songs for the album NY, which is the danish word for New. Prior to this, Morten had spent two weeks in a tiny New York apartment where he composed music for the album, taking inspiration from the experiences of the city and its history, post-war classical music and reflections on life and personality.
