Guitarist and lead vocalist Liam studied at the Academy of Contemporary Music and is now based in Cheshire. His band Cortina cut their first E.P with legendary producer John Etchells (George Harrison/Queen)
After a further two E.P’s, he saw his group ‘Raising Sand’ enter the MTV2 video charts and appeared in NME’s cover feature alongside ‘We are Scientists’, ‘Editors’ and ‘The Arctic Monkeys’. Raising Sand enjoyed consistent London gigging and summer festivals including a slot supporting the Fun Lovin Criminals.
Matt has been a drummer in bands and local folk clubs for many years. Matt provides backing vocals and plays the Cajon setup with hi-hats/cymbals (in effect, a small drum kit!).
The Cajon has been used to accompany acoustic artists such as Seth Lakeman, Sandy Thom and even rock band Biffy Clyro. Matt uses a hybrid electric drum kit for evening receptions. The volume can be altered easily to help adhere to venue sound limiters.
