Tell us three things about yourself

I'm a bass player first and always will be. I love cycling and chocolate! I'm so excited to bring our new music to the stage in front of people!

How would you describe your music?

My music is electric funk/disco with an emphasis on being fun to watch and perform live.

Who are your musical inspirations?

Nile Rodgers, Paul McCartney, Tame Impala and Disclosure off the top of my head!

What was the first gig you ever went on and the first record you ever bought/downloaded?

The first gig I ever went to was a My Chemical Romance concert in The Point as it was called at the time. All I remember was that it was so loud!! The first album that I ever bought was Living by Paddy Casey. I still listen to it today. Amazing record.

What's your favourite song right now?

Right now I'm actually loving the new Lizzo tune, About Damn Time. Such a groover!

What's your favourite lyric of all time?

Favourite lyric of all time is probably from Grace by The Dubliners, written by Frank and Sean O'Meara, 'Now, as the dawn is breaking, my heart is breaking, too'. I just love that song.

If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, what would it be?

The only song that's coming to my head is Dance, Dance, Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah) by Chic. It's already such a repetitive groove that I think I could probably listen to that for a good while. Not sure about the rest of my life? Haha but it will do.

Where can people find more information about you and your music?

People can find our first single on Spotify and all streaming platforms. And our socials at lemonlakemusic with much more music to come.
