Collins and Streiss are a duo from Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada. Having met and occasionally played together in high school, the two lost touch for many years, only to be reunited in the summer of 2012. After an afternoon of catching up, some drinks and some jamming, the two would once again not see each again until the summer of 2013, where they decided to try and do some writing together. After a couple of hours, the song “Saturday Night” was written and recorded as a demo. Six more sessions followed and another half dozen tracks were written and recorded as demos.
Collins and Streiss have been releasing tracks since 2015, and their latest “Freedom’s Captive” is their 10th release to date. “Freedom’s Captive” is about our growing addiction to our devices, whether it’s cell phones, computers, tablets, social media and so on, and this obsession and need for acquiring likes and followers in today’s web of virtual existence. It’s a compounding obsession in a lot of cases where we have all this freedom and ability to exist and do what we want virtually now, but at the same time are becoming captives to it!
