Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Matt takes his songwriting influences from American artists such as Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson and John Prine. Having played in several bands over the years and also performing as a solo artist, Matt decided to form this band to fully realise his musical ambitions and present his songs to the world as they were meant to sound.
Having known Matt for 10 years, John was delighted to join the band (originally on bass guitar) when asked by Matt and Pete Lock (the band's original lead guitarist). Pete had been a mentor to John and encouraged him to take over the lead guitar role for the band. Since Pete's passing, John says that he will never forget Pete's support even in the final years of his life and that he is loving playing lead guitar more than he ever could have believed.
Mike has played bass in several punk/rock bands over the past few years but joining an alternative country band was a clear change of direction for him. Mike says that being in this band is a high point in his musical career, and he is very optimistic about the future prospects for the band.
Having played in Leicester bands (Dr. Atomic, Heliotrope, Zil) over 25 years and touring the UK and parts of Europe, Will now finds himself in the most chilled out and friendly performing atmosphere of his career as a musician. Will loves being in a gigging band again, and he is excited about taking the music to an ever increasing audience.
