Artist Biography:
Hello,

We have a collection of songs soon to be released - on 19th December, yikes! - and we're using 'Ten years' ia our teaser track to promote the collection in the run up to it's availability.
They’ll take the form of either an album, or a cluster of EP’s, dependant on how all the finished recordings sit alongside each other.
You can also hear extracts of the other songs from the collection here:

We’re a small scale operation, there’s no machine behind us, which we see as an opportunity to keep the schpeel/gumpf surrounding the project succinct!

The 'band' is comprised, primarily, of myself Jeff Kightly (guitar/vocals) and Dave Goldsmith (drums/keys) and we’re based in the UK.
For these recordings we've brought in other musicians - friends and rogues - on tracks as needed, eg. trumpets, melodions, double bass, backing vocals, strings etc.

We’ve no current plan to take the full set out 'on the road', as such, but we are working up a set of stripped back versions of songs from the collection that will work for more sporadic live, intimate performances.

Hope you like it, thanks.
