crowded house, I really need to give them a real

listen because we have had that a few times.

Tell me how you went from playing in your local pubs in Leeds to landing a record contract with an American Record Company?

It was Just one of those right place at the right time things that happen. We played a show in

London at the Bedford in Balham and the promoter there, Tony Moore said He was putting on a stage in Memphis and would like us to play on it. We needed to raise £6000 to get ourselves over there!

The first show we played over there we met our now manager Kevin Wommack, who saw us and fell in love, and offered us a deal.

Back in 2012 you did a live television appearance on the USA’s Tonight Live show with Jay Leno, how was that experience and have you done any other live TV shows since then?

I was really good for us and the reaction was great, we have changed as a band now, both members and sound, I would love to do again, I feel I know what to expect now.

I was so nervous then for years on, I really know what the dunwells are about.

What has been your most memorable experience of your career to date?

It's actually, a really current event, we have Just released Our Newest album Light Up The Sky. We worked so hard to put this together.

I held it in my hand the other day and put the CD in the player and listened to it start to finish, that was a proud moment!
