The hidden third member is songwriter, guitarist and project manager Benjamin Washington.
The U&K sound has been applauded by many heavy weights in the music scene whom have lauded the project as a much needed return to emotive song- craft.

Summer of 2019 saw Union&Kay successfully tour Canada from coast to coast. Playing shows from Vancouver Island to Halifax and as far north as Edmonton Beach, a musical journey of some 18,000 km’s!

In particular was Union&Kay being selected as ‘house-band’ at Zyla’s in Hamilton, playing to a packed house bi-weekly for a duration of some fifteen months.
