Bio

The start of this project was quite simply recording an album, The songs were written during a decade of constant touring and collaboration with other artists and musicians, most of whom now feature in the current line-up of the band. In our opinion this band has some of the most versatile and important talent from the previous projects.
Previous incarnations of the band have collectively played all over the UK and most parts of the world and have shared stages (whether supporting or session playing) for the likes of Demon, Emmanuel Jal, Last Town Chorus, Kathleen Haskard, Daniel Bedingfield, Razorlight and Supergrass.
What sets us apart?
Nearly a decade of playing professionally - which allows us to connect instinctively when playing live. Our live shows have always taken priority and we want our audience to feel like we are there for them (we are not interested in having our ego's stroked). We want people to be absorbed by the music - and hopefully have as much fun as we do.
We have been described as Queen's of the Stone Age meets Pink Floyd with Jeff Buckley somewhere in the middle.

What we are doing now....
We are in the middle of mastering the album and currently booking tour dates to promote the first single (The Lost Boys).
We have also been constructing a website and putting into action the appropriate media outlets - ready for the single release.
We are looking to play clubs, venues, radio stations and festivals, primarily in the UK, Europe and US.
We also plan to license some of the songs for TV and media usage.
We want to work with great passionate people and bands that care about getting good music heard, putting on great events and getting bands where they want to be.

Influences include: Jeff Buckley, Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Blind Melon, Mars Volta, Incubus, Nirvana, At The Drive In, Reef, Pearl Jam, Weezer, Queen, Wildhearts, Queen's of the Stone Age to name but a few.
