Kieran has been playing bass for over 10 years and has been in many bands over that time. He has now filled the void that was missing over the last few months by joining 6appeal in December. He thinks playing with this band makes him feel human as when you see him perform you will see he is in a world of his own on another planet maybe. Kieran is a private person and the quietest in the band he just likes to Chillax and eat his vegetables whilst waiting to get in the groove performing with the band of a dozen genres.
Simon, started playing brass aged 9. After playing in brass bands as a teenager, he switched to bass guitar after leaving school to avoid getting a proper job. After playing in various local rock and pop bands for many years he developed an interest in jazz. This lead to him picking up the trumpet again and studying jazz at Birmingham Conservatoire. He has since split his time between trumpet, bass guitar and surfing. He continues to avoid full time time employment. Simon loves the banter and relaxed feeling he gets with 6appeal and is willing to stand in on bass if needed, he also plays an array of percussion instruments that bring life to the band.
