I was a founding member of BAiT in 1996 and remained a member throughout the band's existence and line-up changes.
Coventry-based BAiT was an original rock band, which performed songs featuring strong and melodic harmonies and innovative arrangements.
Originally formed in 1996, the band featured nine line-ups throughout its existence, culminating in its strongest line-up, featuring Chris Johnson (ex Cherry Stones) on guitars, Nick Nugent (ex State Of The Art) on keyboards, and founder members Andy Pitcher on bass guitar and me on drums.
The band's sound ulimately comprised driving guitars, vintage synth sounds, and a solid and tight rhythm section, while their songs had a contemporary sound, played against a solid, classic rock background.
Vocal harmonies were always a key component part of the band's sound, with many songs including three-part harmonies.
There was also time to produce an acoustic set, featuring 'lighter' versions of the band's songs.
The band recorded five albums and one EP in total:
- Not In My Back Yard (2000)
- Shut Up And Take A Seat (2002)
- South Of The Delta (2004)
- The Full English (2005)
- BAiT Lite (2006)
- EP (2007)
Please take a look at the BAiT website. I remain very proud of the group of musicians I had the pleasure of working with and what we achieved together.
