“We have all grown up in Perth, Australia, whilst Roy is originally from Singapore. Having my mind blown watching Roy perform as I was coming up through the Perth music scene I never actually thought one day I would be playing together with him. Eventually one day a friend convinced me to ask him if he would play at My ‘Lets Play’ CD launch in 2008 and much to my surprise he said yes. From then on our friendship and time performing together has grown and grown.
Elliot actually attended the school that I have been teaching at for many years now. The year he finished high school is the year I started teaching there so that was our first encounter of knowing each other; neither of us suspecting that many years later we would become close friends and perform music together! He was a great player even back then and to be honest I didn’t really teach him anything that year that he wasn’t already working on himself. After asking a colleagu in the music industry who I could use for a drummer one time they suggested Elliot and I thought “I know that guy!” So we joined forces and I have appreciated his kind, reliable and open demeanour being around ever since.
Once we all came together it was a match that came together effortlessly. Because of our musicianship but mostly because we all just got on so well together. We have done a few tours together and they were the times we really got to know each. There was never a dull conversation on the long drives. Whether it was about spirituality, aliens, music, movies or strange doco’s we had recently seen; it was always fascinating and fun to compare notes about subjects that made for some amazing road stories! And then top it off by having so much fun performing together.”
