- How did you get your initial start in music?
As band we all come from different backgrounds with different influences including rock, pop and classical. Nicola Bates (violin & vocals) has toured with the English Orchestra and Sting, Brían McNamara (lead singer/guitarist) comes from a folk rock background and honed his craft playing venues in bars from New York to San Francisco and Dublin. Laurence Bridge (Bass guitar) has performed in the past with likes of Lucie Barrat (sister of the famous Libertine) and Tom Odell. We’ve merged these influences together to create a unique sound.
- What would be your ultimate aim in the industry
To make music and to try and stick around for as long as we can.
- How long have you been writing your own music?
We’ve been writing together since we started the band in Brighton in 2013.
- Who are your top three influences and why?
Our sound taps from a well of music that includes Wilco, Fleetwood Mac and The Waterboys. They influence us as they have made some incredible music that will stand the test of time.
- Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?
Its available on Spotify, Amazon and ITunes from March 10th
- Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?
We’re based in the sea-side town of Brighton. The local scene is a vibrant one with great venues such as The Hope & Ruin and The Green Door Store. We feel lucky to call it home.
- Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?
Rotait are an incredible two piece alt-rock act (cello and drums – think Damien Rice meets The White Stripes) and Paul Murray is one of the finest solo troubadours we’ve seen.
