Iago

The band that started it all

Iago was a band i  started with my father

I brought in Dan Hillman and the drummer Tom 'Ash' Ashcroft who where joining Brakelight

We quickly invited the destined Crash Gears Guitarist, James Leighton, in alongside the talented vocalist Darcy Humphreys

It was an instant, success.

The combination of my talented peers and honed set with some atypical covers, gave us a fantastic reception everywhere we went.

I've always believed the fastest way to get better is to play with people who are better than you.

It was in Iago where i really learned how to play bass

As well as all the best ways to hide mistakes.

It was the great responses we got that really spoke to me and at one gig in Charlie's, i thought...

"Why don't i see how far i can take playing bass? Not sure what i'm doing anyway"

Its been a few years now and its definitely clear that without Iago, i wouldn't be half the bassist i am today.
