The Climb is a new band based in south Bucks playing a mix of country blues with a sprinkling of soul and jazz for good measure. Out front we have the versatile combination of singers Hayley Carlyon and Andrew Mayne. Hayley's roots are in country and bluegrass music whilst keys player Andrew is a ‘jazzer’ at heart. We have two other Andrews - Aylett on bass guitar and drummer Andy Bunker - a tight (musically...they do buy drinks) rhythm section who also add to the band’s vocal harmonies. Completing the line up is hugely experienced guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Johnny Hinkes. From the start we said we wanted to avoid the usual covers band repertoire, so the set features some of our favourite songs and artists; from Etta James, Nora Jones and the Stereophonics to Neil Young and the Travelling Wilburys, together with originals written by Hayley, all are given the Climb treatment. You’ll recognise most of them and we hope you’ll love the arrangements too.
