Feeling a bit camera shy


Blue Gillespie are a progressive metal four piece aimed at music fans who like their music loud, tighter than a drum skin, and unapologetically real. Formed in November 2007 they have already released two EPs, Cave County 1 and the more acoustic Cave County 2, and one album, Synesthesia, as well as building up a wealth of experience playing live.

Their sound is built on epic riffs, brutal intricate beats and aggressive bluesy vocals. Blue Gillespie received a hugely positive response for Cave Country and say; “the support focused and disciplined us and with our debut album Synaesthesia we were able to express what we wanted to say, in the way we wanted to say it. That others are affected by our music makes the whole process even more fulfilling.”

Though they have crafted a sound that is distinctly their own, Blue Gillespie have been influenced by many artists including Meshuggah, Tool, Portishead and Down, and inspired by music from just about every genre.

Blue Gillespie thrive playing live, where their interaction with an enthusiastic audience brings their music to life. The bandenjoy establishing a two-way connection with their audience which feeds the energy of the gig both on and in front of the stage.
The band see the character ‘Blue Gillespie’ as a collective alter-ego who represents the hidden darker side of each of us; the part that harbours dissatisfaction and anger. Through the music Blue Gillespie explore and vent this dark side with their audience.

Blue Gillespie have received a lot of press interest due to Gareth David-Lloyd’s, the band’s vocalist, acting career, but are slowly carving out a name for themselves separate from this. Blue Gillespie have already received a number of high profile positive reviews for Synesthesia and are looking for objective interest and reviews from music journalists whose primary interest is the music and not his TV appearances. “We are a band and have our own identity. We are not TV stars here; we are musicians. We are not a band of skinny, angsty teenagers. We are band of pot bellied angry adults.”
