Tin Spirits was formed in 2008, when guitarist Daniel Steinhardt invited his friend and musical hero Dave Gregory (formerly of XTC) to come and jam with The Hi-Fidels, a Swindon-based trio made up of Steinhardt, bassist/vocalist Mark Kilminster and drummer Doug Mussard. An instant connection was made, and what began as four people getting together to play covers for their own enjoyment was clearly destined for greater things.
Two and a half years on, fresh from supporting Marillion in front of 3,000 people at the MarillionWeekend2011 festival in Port Zélande, Netherlands, Tin Spirits have delivered one of the most exciting independent releases of the year so far. Wired To Earth.
As well as playing songs from their highly acclaimed debut album the band also play a mixture of 70’s prog classics from bands such as Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Rush and of course a generous helping of XTC tracks.
