Guitarist Bilal produces rhythmic and melodic guitar parts that interlink with vocal melodies perfectly.

James has played the drums for over 10 years. Having studied the instrument at college, he has since gone on to be a much-demanded drummer for local cover and wedding bands, whilst also locking down beats for originals projects.
