Children’s Hospice Arts are so pleased to announce that Captain Horizon have come on board as Official Supporters of our cause. Huge thank you to Alan Savill and Wendy Savill for making this happen. Welcome aboard!
Captain Horizon are an original alternative rock band from the West Midlands. Drawing from a wide range of influences, they write and perform songs with a sound entirely their own. The band are totally committed to creating something new with every song they write, and in the process have carved out their own unique identity.
Live, Captain Horizon deliver their songs in a frontal assault of passion, energy, vocal harmonies and charisma. Performance and entertaining their audience are critical as far as Captain Horizon are concerned. Captain Horizon are: Steve “Whitty” Whittington – lead vocals Joshua Watson – guitars, backing vocals James “Mez” Merrix – drums, percussion Alex Thomson – bass, backing vocals The band was born in the summer of 2008 when Josh and Alex started writing songs that brought together the high energy and intricacy of music from bands like Incubus, Radiohead, Tool and Porcupine Tree, and the classic swagger of stadium bands like AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Pink Floyd and U2. Mez joined shortly after and set about bringing his unique brand of precise and original drumming to the music. Whitty was the last piece of the puzzle, injecting thunderous vocals, unstoppable self belief and the ability to charm any crowd before him. With three EPs and an album under their collective belt, Captain Horizon are soon to release their second album on Rocksector Records.
Their manager Alan Savill says “The band love being able to express themselves through their music. To be able to help those who will not have as many opportunities to play music and to have their lives tragically shortened is a real honour. We look forward interacting with the youngsters and spreading some joy to them and their families”
