Who do we think we are.....

Beard of Destiny are Gray Barlow (guitars, vocals) and Ian Campbell (drums, percussion).

Gray grew up in Brighton and has played in bands since he was 11 years old.  He called his first band Kings of the Cosmic Orb and quite frankly has never looked back.  After moving to Oxford in 2000AD Gray has gigged with many local musicians and spent many years playing bass with The Mighty Redox.  However it was as a member of Nortica and then Lagrima that he was able to start developing his own songwriting style.  

But enough bearded waffle.....what of his trusted cider kick, Mr Eye candy himself,  Ian Campbell aka Sticks?  What's his story?  According to Ian he had an RAF Dad, so doesn't think of himself as coming from anywhere in particular.  So having got used to moving around a lot from an early age, he went on to tour the world with bands such as Outback and Dr Didg.  It don't matter if he's sitting down on the cahon or standing behind a full drum kit, Mr Campbell comes on like a full orchestra and keeps everyone, including Mr Barlow, on the edge of their seats.

 

We are back.. 

Yes, we are back...we have been away from our website but not our music.  we have had a great time and have had some great times including local gigs at the Isis farmhouse, The Wheatsheaf, The Tap Social and we got to play at some amazing festivals this year to name a few,  The Riverside Festival, Day of the Deadbeats, and Richmond Live and are so pleased to be playing on the main stage at Richmond this year too.  

Our gold sequin jackets have had a good airing out this year. 

Lets hope we see more of you soon.  

We will keep you updated of our goings on.
