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), Mark Nisbet (Bass, 2015-19) and Colin Halliwell (Drums) were magically brought together through their passion for well-crafted songs with big choruses, hooky grooves and poetic lyrics. Alchemista promises an eclectic mix of music with a quintessential ingredient!
