K-GARI


Formed in 2002 comprising Ben Powell (Vocals & Acoustic Guitar), Neil Ryles (Vocals & Guitars), Richard Monks (Piano & Fender Rhodes), Jamie Merritt (Bass Guitar) and John Parkinson (Drums & Percussion), K-gari’s intention has been to produce songs that are soulful and powerful enough to stand on their own; each one intimate and outreaching in equal measure.

Formed in 2002 comprising Ben Powell (Vocals & Acoustic Guitar), Neil Ryles (Vocals & Guitars), Richard Monks (Piano & Fender Rhodes), Jamie Merritt (Bass Guitar) and John Parkinson (Drums & Percussion), K-gari’s intention has been to produce songs that are soulful and powerful enough to stand on their own; each one intimate and outreaching in equal measure. Not easily categorised, but influenced by a wide variety of artists, K-gari’s emphasis has been on good honest song writing, enhanced by a unique style of strong melodic harmonies complemented by intertwining rhythms and underpinned by a solid groove. Lyrically, the songs strive to provide a positive message drawn from universal experiences. Songs such as Blood Red Sun and Set Alight, with their camp-fire sentiment and Under Pressure’s defiance to adversity evoke a natural emotive response. “They have that unique ability to make the venue, where you're listening, turn into your bedroom and at the same time they can turn your bedroom into a vast festival field.” Will Walder (BBCi Feature 2004) With their warm embrace of timeless song writing and classic melody K-gari craft a memorable mix of soaring harmonies and boundless musical depth in whichever influence they tip their hats to. Performing together around the South west for over five years and prolific in their output, the band’s emphasis has been on creating music that evokes an honest and vivid image. The ability to create such a vivid image within a song is the key to K-gari’s originality. Often found in venues such as The Louisiana, Bristol, The Porter Cellar Bar, Bath and The Black Cat, BOA, and they have earned an established following from some memorable nights. “I would recommend seeing these guys…it would be almost impossible not to smile while you listen to K-Gari play” Steve Wheadon (Porter Cellar Bar Live Review April 2004) With a wealth of material already written and some stunning new works in progress, K-gari are currently working with industry famous Claire Lewis (Gomez, Bernard Fanning, Kylie Minougue, Peter Gabriel etc.) recording their third demo and creating the perfect live sound whilst continuing to delight audiences. Tidy guitars, magical Piano and a kicking backline guarantee the tapping of toes and nodding of heads, so kick back, raise your glasses and feel the love. Not a bad word has yet been uttered about this hard working group in these often-cynical times. K-gari will surely be a permanent presence in UK music.
