ABOUT US ("The Silk Road")

We're a brand new ORIGINALS band, based in the north of England. Mark James Ross (vox / guitars), Phil Rushfirth (keys), Ricky Campbell (bass / bvox), and Andy Yates (drums).


We're interested in adding a rhythm guitarist who can sing great backing vocals (and ideally something of a multi-instrumentalist) to complete our line up. You will be based somewhere in the North of England and willing to commit to rehearsing twice a month in Stockport and/ or gigging in the NW of England.


To get our all-original material "out there" in front of as wide an audience as possible; you know... pubs, clubs and festivals, as much radio play as we can muster, and great social media presence too.


Just get in touch ... !

It would be rude not to bow down to the FIRST division wouldn't it? Beatles, Dylan, Floyd, Zeppelin, Hendrix, CSNY and The Stones. (Glad we got all that out of the way). Oasis, the LA's, Stone Roses, The Mondays, Richard Hawley and of course "The Almighty Blues Supreme Bluesman" himself, John Mayer.

But almost ANYONE can get under our skin with the right tune... The Dead, Louis Armstrong, Simon & Garfunkel, Paddy McAloon, Glen Campbell, Brian Wilson, Carole King, Mark Knopfler, Syd Barrett, Adele, Amy, Sinatra, Doris Day ... you know?
