Biography

London, England (2003 – present)

Tunng are a London, England, / band, formed in 2003. The band consists of Mike Lindsay (vocals, guitar), Becky Jacobs (vocals, percussion, synths), Ashley Bates (banjo, guitar), Phil Winter (electronics, sampling, keyboards), Martin Smith (percussion, keyboards/piano) and Simon Glenister (drums). Their latest album is “Turbines” (Jun 2013, Full Time Hobby).

Former members include co-founder Sam Genders (vocals, guitar), who left the band before the release of “…And Then We Saw Land” (Mar 2010, Full Time Hobby).

Tunng started after Genders and Lindsay met, in the latter’s Soho basement studio (below a clothes shop). Genders was a singer-songwriter and Lindsay had the studio (making and living through advertising music production). They found that Lindsay’s distinctive way with twinkling sounds, and tight production, significantly enhanced the folky songs they were writing - A signature sound developed.

Tunng’s first album was “Mother’s Daughter and Other Songs” (Jan 2005, Static Caravan) - However, since Genders made at first the choice not to play live, Lindsay found Jacobs and Bates. to help with live shows. Over time, Winter and Smith became part of the band and have all contributed more to recordings, first on “Comments of the Inner Chorus” (May 2006, Full Time Hobby), then more so on “Good Arrows” (Aug 2007, Full Time Hobby).
