Lead singer Peter Quinn has always had his voice compared to Bowie’s. “I released an album of original material in 1999 and it was instantly compared to Bowie. It was something I had been told from the time I cut my first demo tape, so when I was looking for a new project a Bowie tribute was the obvious direction.”

All highly experienced and seasoned musicians, the band faithfully recreate David’s diverse and complex repertoire, often handpicked from particular live performances crossing the many decades and genres that reflect his genius and creativity.
