Sara Onyett and Jason Smith formed the indie rock duo the Cherry Orchard in the mid-'90s after frolicking with individual musical projects since 1988. Both natives of the U.K., the two slowly composed the lush musical stylings of The Start of Our Affair. The French label Cavalcade issued the record in 1998, however the new millennium landed the Cherry Orchard a deal with March Records in the U.S. By now, Cavalcade changed their name to Riviera, and the follow-up EP Espresso, five cuts with a Latino twist, appeared in 1999.
