Charlie Whaley (Previously with Glass City, Subsystem, Red Exit Girl, Between The Eyes) and George Morgan (Former music manager and band communication) came together on an idea of forming an Instrumental, Post-Rock sound. After a few band practices and idea sessions, they would write their first two songs "Soldiers" and "The Element".

It took a while to solidify the band, as they needed a drummer. After a while the lads recruited Tobias Chave-Fletcher, who would complete the puzzle of the three piece men of melodies Thousand Fingers, which would see the big break in the writing of their turn around track "Ocean Lights" of which took to the hearts of many listeners and fans.

With the band in full swing, they made their debut with established Monmouth band of 5 years Red Exit Girl in Monmouth. They would then find themselves performing at a local Hog Roast, receiving an overwhelming response from the crowd, that really seemed to take to the new sound.

After many practices and hard work, the band wrote many other tracks, and quickly produced a decent hour set, which would take them to Newport, Hereford, Gloucester, Coleford, Abergavenny, Tenbury Wells and Worcester. As a result of their work, a few foreign audiences and independent labels took notice, and they would take on a one album deal with Holy Grail Records from Ireland in 2011.

They are looking forward to the future and spreading their influence elsewhere, with many festivals on the agenda and also a UK Tour or two. The lads are looking to a brighter future.
