Well where do I begin, at the beginning i guess. I started getting into music around 9 yrs old. My stepfather gave me a Albums by the Stones, Chuck Berry and some AC-DC. My first band was called Alcatraz, a school band and played at the local youth club as often as possible. I used to watch bands rehearsing in my step fathers house. I picked up my first bass guitar from Woolworths, you cud play Cricket with it, if you fancied it. I think it was £14.99 I think, FENDER Jazz copy. I was playing original songs, mostly punk rock orientated. I guess my second band was the one that changed things for me it was called Fairwarning. I did bass and backing vocals and written most of the songs with the guitar player. Started gigging and kind of seriously began playing in the shit holes of the north. Was in a couple of bands after that, can't remember some names except The Richard Hagan Band. Felt like I was going through my Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen period. Stayed solo for the next 5yrs or so, writing with various people. Did some publishing deals and kept on chasing the dream. Got tired of being on my own. I missed being in a band, . Couldn't get a record deal at the time, Singer/Songwriter solo artists were few and far between in them days. Spent a lot of time with older professionals writing, recording and gigging. The Sad Cafe Boys, 10cc, etc. Did a tour supporting Lloyd Cole and The Commotions. That was a joke but good experience! Thrown a band together one day, went on tour next day,and then the bass player from the day before didn't even turn up! The whole European Tour was like that. Met some great people on this journey so far.. I formed a band called OMKARA, put a lot of time into this by this time. I was obsessed with my dream. The band looked great and were all great players. The Band was well received, started to become a reality that I could make a living as being a musician. I was sacked a couple of years later. Formed the first EARTHWOOD which started with Steve and me and eventually became three,Charlotte was the third. My first experience of working in a band with a girl. EARTHWOOD consisted of myself on vocals, Steve Seagar on 12string acoustic and Charlotte on percussion and vocals. Probably the most successful band to date, more of a challenge for lots of reasons. Certainly was the hardest gigging band so far. Gigged everywhere we could, raw, loud and aggressively tribal. Picked the bass up for the odd song, but had to be a great front-man for this to work well and, press the buttons I wanted to reach. Cutting a lengthy,curvy winding road short, Charlotte and Steve became an item, and it went all downhill from there. Reformed EARTHWOOD as an electric 5 piece. This Band was darker and a lot heavier than anything previous. Gigged hard, sometimes 8 gigs a week, really learnt my craft as a front-man in this band. Rock was dead in the UK from a commercial point of view. There was no Radio 1 Rock Show. Built a big following, worked hard, had sponsorship, equipment, guitars etc. Did lots of supports on the toilet circuit! Had some great moments. Never thought this band would fail but it did.Eventually it ended about 5 yrs later. For the first time since I was 12yrs old,I wanted to get off the Rock and Roll dream. Hair was down to my waist,shaved it off to the skin, felt like I was reborn, bleached it blond and locked myself in my home which was a big warehouse down near a river. Learned to play the drums, it was good to get all those years of frustration out on the kit. ! Spent the last five years doing that. Helps me survive. Was unhappy in my personal life, I lived in a suburban 3 bed semi, and it wasn't a very creative environment for me. Change is good, never been feared of that. Got out of my house, FOUND A PLACE FOR ME. and then all my creativity, hunger, passion and desire to stand on the mountain came back. Started to write again, met Kye Robert Jones. IT WAS TIME TO BEGIN AGAIN

Kye Robert Jones AKA: Dr Dread-lock Age: 21 Star Sign: Gemini

First picked up a guitar when i was 3, got to played my first bass when i was 14, been a bass head ever since. I love all kinds of music from Frank Sinatra to American Head Charge, Led Zeppelin to Cyprus Hill and loads more. My biggest influence in the world of bass is Justin Chancellor from Tool. I play what you would call Lead Bass i guess, lots of fiddly parts. I studied music at Warrington Collegiate and the British Academy of New Music in London. I've been in 5 other bands in the past few year - Odd Soks, Escape, Worm Boy Suicide, D.O.D. and False Fury.
