Father and Son “Love without Phones”

‘Father and Son’ Team Mark and Caleb Cuffe have just released their first single.

Ozzie Fikri from Highlands tv flew down to Melbourne to shoot the music video, and Michael Turczynski edited it back at the Highlands tv Studio.

On asking Ozzie What it was like to work with this dynamic Father and son team he said “Mark and Caleb and two really nice guys and I love their style and music, I hope a lot of people start to follow them and purchase their music so they don’t have to remove rubbish anymore. You can see they had a rubbish removal job the day I shot the video.”

“Love Without Phones” went on to win the Best Music Video category of the Zedd Music Festival in California, United States.
