Bio

With 17 Years under his belt as a pianist, vocalist and musician, Ant Syms and his band TOWN have been hard at work writing, playing and creating music that hopes to deliver a punch to the Alternative folk / rock soundscape.

With bassist Mark Davies and drummer Richard Graves, TOWN draw influence from a diverse blend of punk, rock, jazz, blues and soul.

Led by piano and vocals, driven by rock Drums and grounded by double bass and bow, the music is Defined by a unique mix of heart felt tributes, waltzy ballads, boot stomping rock and slow building moody tension.

The sounds evoke imagery of dark alley ways and howling dogs, broken bottles and hearts, battles lost and things found. Where roads cross and paths meet, the lights are dim and Whiskey is your Sin.

Welcome to TOWN.

Town are tight as hell, brilliant musicians, fun to watch, engaging and passionate. Together they create a unique sound that I can only describe as dark cabaret that you can imagine being performed on a fictional pirate ship off the coast of New Orleans in a Tarantino film that doesn’t exist. - Dean Hamilton, Roos Live Experience
