10 Questions we ask every band...
Exeters very own Setting Circles got in touch with us about their upcoming recording time, we thought that now was probably a good time to get some info out of them before their album comes out and they forget about us mere mortals..
1) Members names: Jake Jordan-Wall - Guitarist, Jamie Beard - Vocalist, Jack O'Hara - Bassist, George Woodward - Drummer
2) When did you get together?
Jamie, Jack and I had the idea brewing for over a year but i lived in Spain at the time and couldn't. So i moved to Exeter and attended Exeter College to pursue this idea. Met George who was on my course and had our first practice in January.
3) How did you all meet?
I went to school with Jack in Spain for a few years, then he left for Exeter. He then met Jamie at school and so Jack introduced us. I was at the time looking for an interesting singer to start a band with Jack and so Jamie was perfect. Months later i attended college and met George, he was perfect! For the sound we were interested in making, he hit the spot!
