Swain - vox, guitar, bass, BV
Swain has had varied musical tastes ranging from classic rock, through to drum & bass and hip hop. Whilst at university, Swain gained a taste for heavier bands such as Metallica, Killswitch Engage and System of a Down.
Geoff - guitar, BV
Geoff has been coming up with tunes since the age of nine. Self taught, first on classical guitar and then electric, Geoff has sought to combine the two and create a style all his own: the nylon-strung electric guitar.
Tony - keyboards, grand piano
Tony began playing keyboards whilst in primary school and by university had completed the ABRSM piano grades. Tony plays (amongst others) a Yamaha Motif XF8 Synth, Yamaha MOX8 Synth, and had use of the fabulous Yamaha CFX Concert Grand for the album.
Chris - drums
Christopher has played with a whole host of bands throughout Milton Keynes, Banbury, Birmingham and London. The sessions with New Earthlings were very exciting, and each track was learned on the day, with only two or three takes per song – allowing for a very natural feel to each track, and no time to overthink the parts!
