In the summer of 2014, Alicia began writing a suite inspired by people, places, pets and stories from her early years. This drumless quintet had its début outing in June at a church designed by a distant ancestor and was performed as part of Alicia's mother's 60th birthday celebrations. The band have since played at Birmingham Jazz's Red Lion.
