6. Heritage is formed of musicians from a number of different musical backgrounds, each having their own musical influences which attribute to the overall sound.

Ethan the vocalist and main lyricist, has been in bands since he was in his late teens. Playing with some amazing Australian names over the years. His latest band was the Melbourne metalcore band; A Sleepless Winter. Coming from metalcore and deathcore backgrounds, Ethan pulls influences from bands like The Devil Wears Prada, Bleeding Through, The Plot in You, Thy Art is Murder, Chelsea Grin and various other artists and lyricists. With his strong low and mid range vocals and unique highs attributing to the bands diversity from riffs and driving breakdowns to melodic bridges.

Andre, one of the guitarists has been in bands since the age of 13. His latest band was Said The Virgin, a young Melbourne post-hardcore band. Coming from a majorly progressive and pop punk background, he brings a slight twist to the sound with his upbeat melodies and atmospheric interludes. He draws his main influences from bands such as Deftones, The Plot In You, Bring Me The Horizon, Blink 182, All Time Low and The Ghost Inside. One of two main songwriters in the band, utilising crushing breakdowns and soaring melodies, his sometimes quite experimental ideas and passages add to the band’s ever-growing sound.

John, the other guitarist has been playing since he was 14. Like Ethan, he was also a member of Melbourne metalcore band A Sleepless Winter. Playing through styles from jazz to death metal regularly, he brings a different approach to playing and songwriting. He draws his main inspiration from bands such as The Devil Wears Prada, Periphery, Thy Art Is Murder and Killswitch Engage. Being one of the main songwriters, his heavy, groove driven riffs and melodic leads finish off the bands sound.

Shane, the drummer of the band and one of the lyricists has been playing drums since 2004. He joined Heritage coming straight out of his old band ‘Foundations Fall”. Shane’s drumming was inspired by Travis Barker, but then later influenced by bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, Northlane, House vs Hurricane and Woe, Is Me. His trademark sound has changed since leaving Foundations Fall, and has introduced this new sound to create something that people haven’t heard him create.

Jacob, the bassist is the most recent addition to Heritage, he takes his main influences from bands such as Bring Me The Horizon, The Amity Affliction, Blink 182 and A Day To Remember. Jacob started off playing piano at age 11, soon after he progressed on to guitar and soon bass. Jacob has had previous live and recording experience in local bands such as We, The Rationalists and Room Sixteen, his style utilises driving rhythm and punchy low end to drive Heritage’s chunky breakdowns.
