Groomhill

? Bio
Groomhill; we're a guitar based band and pretty (if you play fast and loose with the word 'pretty') eclectic but always gravitate back to an Indie/rock/60s style I guess. You decide. I suppose it's remotely possible you've heard us individually; a small bar in Chiang Mai or a hotel in Cornwall... but you definitely haven't heard us together, until now.
? Members
Alan; Guitars (lead, bass, slide, rhythm) song-writing.

Wayne; vocals, rhythm guitar, guitar synth, keyboard, drum prog,
song-writing.


? Influences and thanks
Wayne's thanks/influences - Paul Goodman (mate who tuned my first guitar), Alan Hill (who convinced me we could write songs), Lee Travis (check out Opposite Worlds) and Aaron Reeves for their studio knowledge and skills, Kate Bush (for her story telling), Bee Gees, Beach Boys and Take That (for their song writing/performances) and The Beatles (for almost everything).
Alan's influences - Eric Clapton, Paul Kossoff, George Harrison, Jimmy Page, Neil Young, Keith Richards, Mark Knopfler, Hank Marvin, Paul Weller, Little Feat, The Eagles, Steely Dan, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Stackridge, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Drive-By Truckers, Joe Bonamassa, Chris Rea, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, BB King, Thin Lizzy, Gary Moore, Ray Davies, James Taylor, Marc Bolan, - and Wayne Groome for ideas and encouragement.
? Sounds Like
Some say...Bread, Roxy Music (although I don't see it 'Wayne'), Coldplay (I didn't see that coming either! Alan) .
