‘I love the energy on these recordings, it's something that I think is really missing from contemporary music. There is obviously an Irish influence, but I hear shades of The Clash (at their best), Thin Lizzy, Boomtown Rats, Elvis Costello. You've really managed to capture the feeling that you are reflecting real people on the street.’ Mark Flannery, Engineer/Producer (U2, Black Sabbath, Depeche Mode)
‘Opener Ode To Old Reilly set the tone of a band big on musicianship and melody — and intelligent lyrics with both a meaning and enough hooks to get under the skin of even the most hardened music lover.’ The Brighton Magazine, brighton.co.uk
Support will come from Duncan Mckenzie. As a session guitarist Duncan has played many major studios including Decca, EMI and Abbey Road Studios. Duncan also played in a duo for many years with guitar legend, Big Jim Sullivan.
Duncan’s playing ranges from emotional ballads to dynamic techniques and intricate finger styles, this together with his distinctive vocals, makes him a popular choice at festivals, concerts and private functions worldwide.
‘We just loved listening to your music playing and passion, I can't wait to see you perform again’ Ray Williams (discovered Elton John and many others!)
‘Duncan has written some lovely songs and deserves the exposure, as a guitarist, he can proudly hold his head up on any stage alongside any top guitar player’ Big Jim Sullivan
