Biography

Neil Ivison (Vocals/Guitar) & Adam Barry (Keys/Vocals) met at college in Worcester and began writing and performing together soon after.

Influenced by the rawness of early CCR records and the intimate storytelling of Ian Hunter, they are fast becoming one of the UK’s most talked about and sought after new artists, building the buzz the old-fashioned way with word-of-mouth endorsements of their live shows.

Tracks posted on their official website have generated immediate and overwhelmingly positive feedback. Within weeks, The Misers secured a DOUBLE chart victory, racing to the top of the Americana AND Country charts on Myspace UK. They have also topped the Unsigned Chart for 3 consecutive weeks with the download only single ‘Back In Your Arms’.

Within a few months, they have been elevated from playing to a few dozen people in local bars to opening for such acts as Ocean Colour Scene, The Proclaimers & Proud Mary.

TV appearances have also been quick to follow with the band appearing on ITV Wales’ ‘The Wales Show’ & SkyArtsHD ‘The Book Show At Hay’.

Neil is blessed with a soulful, passionate voice that evokes ‘Free’ era Paul Rodgers, Bruce Springsteen in his ‘Born to Run’ prime and his modern contemporary Kelly Jones. In his writing, Neil has the gift of being able to tell a story in a song, real life characters take on a life of their own, challenging the listener to seek out more.
