Dan Crisp (vocals/acoustic/bouzouki) was born in Bournemouth, England and introduced to music at an early age. A keen and talented music student at Somerset College of Arts and Technology, Dan utilised the opportunity to front a college band, playing local pubs and clubs around Taunton, Somerset. In 2001, Dan’s early writing and recording was spotted by Brent Treloar of Upbeat Music, who encouraged him to form a band with friend and bassist Alan Bray (Ska’d For Life, Squid 58) and Roger Luxton on Drums.
This collaboration, linked with an introduction to Martin Barre (Jethro Tull) gave Dan the confidence to develop his own distinctive writing and vocal style. A series of acoustic gigs featuring Dan, Martin and Alan followed, including a sell-out performance at Exeter’s Phoenix Theater.
Dan’s debut album, Far From Here, was released in 2008. Its 12 tracks depict the life and key events of a fictional character tackling challenges such as rebellion, falling in love, getting a grip on life, winning and losing and the realisation of one’s place in the world. It features members of Fairport Convention and the John Martyn Band, including Gerry Conway (Percussion), Arran Ahmun (Drums), Spencer Cozens (Piano), Alan Bray (Bass) and Chris Leslie (Violin).
George Lindsay (drums) started playing drums at five years old when his parents bought him his first kit. He studied with various teachers around the UK, and graduated from college with a triple distinction in music practice. At 18, he dived head-first into music and never looked back. He has toured extensively throughout the UK, performing and recording with artists such as Futures, The King Blues, Layla, and Nicholas Stevenson.
Frank Mead (sax/flute/harmonica/percussion/vocals) started playing the harmonica aged 10 years old and by 16 had created his first blues band. However, in the '70’s he discovered his real passion, saxophone.
Frank Mead works as a successful sideman, session musician and soloist and has worked with some incredible musicians such as Gary Moore, Lowell Fulson, BB King, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Michael McDonald, Albert King, Albert Collins, Squeeze, Mike Rutherford, Al Gree and Go West to name a few.
