So, some of you may have noticed, or may have heard me mention it in recent interviews (*cough* here *cough*) that Ells and the Southern Wild have had a wee personnel change in the past few months.
Our lovely bassist Daryl Ball has relocated, and was sadly unable to continue with the band. I’d just like to say a massive (if belated) official thank you to Daryl for all the hard work he put in, for all the slightly inappropriate jokes and the good times we shared. We miss you!
However, we also have a new face to introduce – please welcome Bob Ball (no relation) on lead guitar! We played our first gig together earlier in the month at The Roaring Donkey in Swindon, and I’m very happy to say that I think it’s sounding great. Every musician adds their own style to a band’s overall sounds, so we’re currently busy exploring the sonic possibilities of the new line-up and predict that it will evolve naturally over time. Stay tuned!
We are in the process of recruiting another bassist so, if you think you are the right person for the job, please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
