Meet LILA J by reading all about the band…
Learn more about the members of this original vibrant indie-gypsy-rock band.
I began singing in 1985 when I defiantly joined the “all boys” choir at the local church in Essex.I continued to hone my skills as a vocalist throughout my 20’s and 30’s in various bands such as ‘Cosmic Wibble’, ‘The Present’, ‘LILA’ and now with my partner Gavin, in ‘LILA J’. Having picked up a guitar for the first time at the age of 25, I have been working on my own material ever since. ‘LILA J is the culmination of these years and my quirky, creative nature is reflected in our songs.
As far back as I can remember, I loved listening to music, so much so, I learned to play various instruments around the age of 15. I played with the infamous punk band ‘Foreheads in a Fishtank’ in my twenties, recording 3 albums and 2 Peel sessions. Since then, after re-discovering the importance of playing for fun, it has been a pleasure to find myself doing exactly that in ‘LILA J’. For the first time in years I enjoy writing songs and playing them live, I have my old friend Lisa to thank for that. I’ve decided to devote the rest of my life to pursuing the perfect riff.
