Roland and Adam met in a bar in west London both at the time were small solo artists. After they had added bass player, Thomas Tanner and drummer, Zak Williams, they set off touring small towns around the UK, playing to no more than 100 people at a time. Adam Wilo had wrote some of the fan favourites before even meeting Roland, including, The Wave and Crook In The Hamock. The band have strong ties to controversial Pete Doherty. He frequently joins the band on stage to cover The Libertines.

Band MembersEdit

Roland Bramlin Edit

Lead vocalist, guitarist and song writer Roland Bramlin was born in Maidstone, Kent. Born 16/8/1989, Roland says he became shut off from his peers when he took up guitar and wanted to start a band at the age of 13, wanting to follow in the foot steps of Oasis and the like. It is well known Roland has a good reletionship with Pete Doherty, but is quoted as saying he uses him as a good influence rather than a negative one. Pete Doherty and Kyle Falconer are set to feature on Roland's solo album which is in the final stages writing.

Adam WiloEdit

Born 25/1/1988 in Harrow, he is lead guitarist and co-song writer in Various Artists. He grew up with a musical background, taking up guitar at the age of 10. Zak suffers from extremely low confidence and self belief. Most recently in the news for alcohol and drug offences.

Thomas TannerEdit

Born 11/5/1989 in Maidstone, Kent, attended the same school as Roland, his interest in music kicked into gear once he met Roland at guitar lesson's they both attended, Thomas says he never really wanted to be in a band or become a musician until his friendship with Roland started. Thomas found guitar to normal as a youngster and decided to take up bass in Various Artists.

Zak WilliamsEdit

20/12/1987, and the oldest member of the band, is thought of as the wiser member of the four. Roland once described him like a father they can take on tour. He is known for his skill as a drummer and other band members call him a perfectionist.
