Ben Garrard is a guitarist from South West London. First picking up a guitar at the age of 5, Ben worked his way to the highest grade in classical guitar before hanging it up to specialise in a funk and disco style. Taking heavy influence from artists such as Nile Rogers, Ben loves to get a crowd up and dancing whenever he plays live.
George’s playing combines funk and blues, with sounds ranging from chilled vibey chord progressions to roaring solos. Originally from Cumbria in Northern England, George is currently in his final year of studying at the London College of Music. George’s influences include Jimi Hendrix, Eric Gales, Dan Patlansky, John Mayer and Mansur Brown. George is writing and recording singles in the studio for release later in the year.
