Alchemista are a Coventry-based five-piece band playing their own original songs in a style best described as melodic rock.
Caroline Luxton-White (lead vocals), Pete Garelick (Guitar and harmony vocals), Paul Jayes (Piano and Guitar), Derek Smith (Bass) and Colin Halliwell (Drums) were magically brought together through their passion for well-crafted songs with big choruses, hooky grooves and poetic lyrics. Who do we sound like? Some say we sound a little like Fleetwood Mac but we don't try to sound like anyone and we offer an eclectic mix of songs with a quintessential ingredient :)
