BAND HISTORY

Imogen Brave began as a solo songwriting project for guitarist Mick back in 2005. Coming from a Heavy Metal background in bands such as Kickstart, his songwriting was often subject to the genre, and left him with a back catalogue of material he wanted to express through a different avenue. After working with a few singers on a number of his songs, Mick found Steffi through a side-project pop/rock covers band he was also working on at the time. After the initial stages of the partnership it was evident that Steffi was nursing her own pop-riddled songwriting style which complimented Mick's more classic sound to create a truly great new direction for the duo. After entering a number of tracks to SCALA's (Songwriters and Lyricists Association) Festival of Original Music Awards in the subsequent year, and receiving some positive results; including a Commendation and High Commendation, it was evident that this project needed to become more than "Mick and Stef". Drummer Andy and bassist Scott joined the collaboration in early 2007, also through the covers band in which Mick and Stef originally met, and work began on turning this duo project into a live act.

After more than two years on the live scene, and after writing in excess of twenty songs, Imogen Brave farewelled bassist Scott, siting clashing schedules and stagnancy. Thus dawned a new era for the band, taking on Neil as a breath of fresh air for the complacent band in 2010, sparking fresh songwriting ideas, and motivating Imogen Brave to take on the big bad world of rock with a more fervent urgency.
