About us

Second Time Round are a Midlands-based acoustic duo consisting of Karen "Kaz" Fleming (née Ivison) on vocals and Mike Fleming (me) on guitar and bass. We've been going since early 2005, when I heard Kaz singing in the kitchen and asked her if she wanted to have a go at singing accompanied. This culminated with us appearing at an open mike night at the Roadhouse in Birmingham (that's the Birmingham in the middle of England, not the Alabama one).
