1. Tell us who you are and where you’re from.: I’m a pianist/songwriter based in Glasgow.

2. Describe your music.: It’s piano based and lyrical, somewhere between Randy Newman and Tom Waits, with a whole load of other stuff thrown in. I like writing songs from other peoples perspectives. There is lots of strings and things going on as well.

3. Tell us how the band formed in three sentences.: I made an album. I phoned the guys. They said yes.

4. What did you do before you were in a band?: Drifted along for a while, worked as a piano player in bars and clubs kind of like an apprenticeship…beyond that it all goes a bit hazy.

5. List the first CDs/records each of you bought.: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Rap. I was 8 I think, so at the time was cooler than it sounds..

6. What’s the band up to over the next few months?: Rehearsing and gigging to promote the album release. I’m doing some solo shows as well around the UK.

7. Best item of fan mail you’ve ever received?: None yet…

8. What music do you have on repeat in the tourbus? : Dr Dre “2001” Brian Auger and the Oblivion Express and the Best of Dr Hook.

9. What gear do you use?: Just a Yamaha CP-33 Stage Piano. It’s all I really need, and lighter than a real piano…

10. What’s your best on-tour story?: “Stay on the road” I’m afraid..

11. What do you demand on your rider?: Figs, Olives and Chilean Red Wine…although most of the time we’re lucky to get one!
