    Sophie and Kia met when they were both members of the cast of 'The
    Saddle Club', a television show about young girls and their horses that
    became a worldwide tween sensation and generated a successful series
    of CDs in Australia, including an amazing eight Top 40 singles and 3 Gold

    Sophie played one of the leads in the show and was therefore strongly
    represented on The Saddle Club CDs. Kia played one of the secondary
    roles but nevertheless did manage an album's worth of performances
    over the series of CDs.

    Sophie and Kia got on like a house on fire from the start and become more
    like sisters than friends. It was only natural therefore that the two would
    eventually want to work together on their own project and so in the
    first days of 2005 Sophie and Kia started work on a new album-one that
    they wanted to be a major step forward from what they had previously

    The debut single for the pair, "Planet Tokyo", is a firestorm of guitars and
    harmonies sure to rock Australia's socks off. The brilliant video for
    "Planet Tokyo" was directed by ARIA Award winning director Bart Borghesi
    and Sophie & Kia are embarking upon a month of live appearances to
    promote the single.

    The follow-up single, "He's Everything", was a foot-stomping, hand clapping
    fizzpop bottle of energy that had fans launching themselves into air guitar
    heaven at the series of live shows that followed.

    Not content to simply repeat the same safe promotional campaign of
    shopping centres, Sophie & Kia decided the time was right to form their
    own band. They enlisted the help of Nick Hardcastle and Lindsey Rhimes
    from fellow Wasabi-pop act Curfew who brought on board Simon Shapiro.
    Tour manager Danielle Johnston suggested guitarist Corinne Gibbons and
    drummer Jackie Barnes. The band was initially dubbed "The Existiential
    Thinkers" by Wasabi-pop label boss, David Roy Williams, but later renamed
    themselves "CurSAK".

    A special album of acoustic songs was released for the tour and could only
    be bought at shows (That alubum, "Raw Beauty" is now available for
    purchase from Sophie and Kia's website only). Some of the songs from
    "Raw Beauty" were played as part of a short set at the start of each live
    show but the main set was full on rock. As well as songs from the singles,
    Sophie and Kia previewed tunes from the forthcoming album.

    "Spin" is that album. Released on Oct. 3rd, 2005, "Spin" starts a whole
    new story for Sophie and Kia.

    Sophie, having already tried her hand at songwriting ("What I Believe"
    from "Hello World" was co-written with her father), had suggested that
    both she and Kia should not only choose the songs they recorded but
    should also contribute a number of their own songs to the project. For two
    young women who readily admit to limited musical instrumental abilities
    and no real songwriting experience, the duo have managed to write and
    co-write over half of the tracks on their new album.

    And what an album it is! "Spin" features 15 tracks of pure pop, dance &
    rock exuberance. As well as the singles "Planet Tokyo" and "He's
    Everything" there are another 13 slices of teen emotion set to some of the
    best music you'll hear all year.
