Jon McDevitt is no stranger to the music industry, from creating the theme tune to the Channel 5 series ‘A Different Life’ to selling 2000 unsigned albums with Giest. The seasonal single ‘Father Christmas’ doesn’t follow the Christmas cliché as the lyrics are carefully considered with the help of co-writer Dominic Hudson. Hudson wrote the lyrics based on elements of his own life as a parent who isn’t always able to be with his children. However the theme of ‘Father Christmas missing from Christmas’ can be interpreted by anyone as they wish, making it accessible for all.
The band consists of multiple talented musicians such as violinist Anna Jenkins who has worked with the likes of Emily Barker, The Unthanks and Frank Turner when he opened the 2012 Olympics.
