MEET THE BAND

Kayleigh: Vocalist

Kayleigh's passion for singing started at a young age after being inspired by big voice diva singers. After vocal training and gaining experience being on small stages, this led to Kayleigh taking part in a number of singing competitions around the South Coast.

 

These included reaching the semi-finals of Open Mic UK where over 10,000 singers applied. Kayleigh impressed the judges made up of recording artists, talent scouts and record labels with her original arrangements of popular songs and unique voice which was described as sounding ‘soulful’, like ‘velvet’ and having 'natural light and shade’. ​

Kayleigh is also part of a Bournemouth based choir, performing a range of soul, pop and musical theatre songs. She enjoys harmonising in a ‘feel good’ choir as well as performing solos. 

After trying to find the perfect band to be a part of, Kayleigh discovered Tony and Lee at the early stages of creating an acoustic trio. With a combined love for stripped back acoustic arrangements, and putting a new spin on different styles of music, 'Sunsets' were created!

Tony: Guitarist

Tony picked up his first Guitar aged 13 and has hardly put one down since. His early career comprised of mainly writing and recording, leading to working with originals bands such as 'Out of Order' and 'Tomboy' as well as writing for numerous solo performers and bands.

 

More recently, his live work has been diverse and varied including touring with an 'Elvis' Tribute Show and Rock band 'Backyard Jam' before indulging his love for Jazz and Funk guitar by forming 'Sister Chic' with long time collaborator; Lee Hodgson.

After always having a love of, and a talent for, acoustic music and intricate arrangements, Tony was inspired to take on a new challenge and start an acoustic band with an ambitious and original style.

 

Experimenting with unique acoustic arrangements together with Lee and naturally creating an unforgettable sound, they decided to create 'Sunsets'! 

Lee: Guitarist

Lee studied music from an early age and graduated from music college as an accomplished classically trained guitarist.

Developing his talent and incredible technical knowledge, Lee plays many instruments and has played, written and engineered for numerous artists.

 

Over the years, Lee has played live extensively both as a session player and with bands such as 'Dreams in Colour' as well as a bass guitarist for funk band 'Sister Chic'. 

Lee has gained an exceptional amount of experience of different styles of music throughout his music career. From jazz and funk to country and blues, the combined experience has led him to perfect intricate acoustic guitar solos using his impressive finger picking style creating the unique and enduring 'Sunsets' sound.
