The band was formed in 2006 by Guitarist/vocalist Dave Browett and Bassist/vocalist John Cunnison. Both had played in a variety of bands in the 80’s, and 90’s and with their first drummer Simon Reay-Jones recruited at the end of 2006 they played at venues in and around London in 2007, including the Dublin Castle. Later in 2007 drummer Keith Nicholls joined the band and this line-up was to last until the end of 2009. The band recorded their first album “All of These things” and played a variety of venues including The Live club stage at Guilfest 2009. In 2010 with drummer Jon Parry the band played Guilfest again and released an EP "The Time We Have" and their second album "Rock This Machine". In 2011 drummer Rob Hayter joined the band and the band played on the second stage at Guilfest as well as recording a 5-track EP entitled "Which Path". In 2012 the same line-up played on the Main Stage at Guilfest and in 2013 work on their next project began. In 2014 drummer Aleem Saleh joined the band and they released 3 tracks "3x3". In 2015 Mike Hislop joined on bass and in 2016 they released a 5-track EP "Colour Shift". In 2017 the band released their latest album "Foundation" and played on the Main Stage at Basingstoke Live amongst other shows and festivals. In 2018, with new keyboard player Graham Cowdry joining, the band started writing new material but also managed to find time to play at several venues and festivals. It's now 2019 and the band are continuing to write new material but also are looking to play their original style of alternative/progressive rock at some select gigs to entertain audiences throughout the Home Counties and beyond...
