The band was formed in 2007, the brainchild of a guitarist and a bassman who wanted to play "proper" rock and damn the consequences, and thus The Julia Set was born. That lasted all of five minutes, as the guitarist promptly landed a decent job in Monmouth and moved.
The bassman, however, carried on with the concept and, after a few false starts and dead-ends, managed to pull together the five-piece guitar & piano influenced rock band that we've got today, based in and around the West London area.
We've had a long stint playing covers but always with the goal of writing our own material and, in 2013, we gathered a few songs together and released an EP, titled "Skyline".
Influences include just about any style that's ever included electric guitar, and one or two that haven't. That's probably why we haven't really settled on a style, yet, opting to play and write things that sound good to us.
The line-up is Mickey Berry on lead vocals, Yogi Georgiou plays lead guitar, Paul Witty entertains on keys and rhythm guitar, Rob Dunse plays drums (and is a very good photographer) and Mike Atkinson pounds his bass while trying to sing backing vocals.
We hope that you enjoy listening to our music as much as we enjoy playing it.
