Paisley Road is an acoustic guitar/vocal duo and trio formed in February 2014. We love doing stripped back covers of songs from many genres … the sound we create is pure and clean with no backing tracks, no mixing or hi tech productions
Since forming, Paisley Road has worked hard and has quickly developed into a very focused outfit. We spend a lot of time on arrangements, rehearsals, gigging, marketing and business management to grow our fan and venue base.
Paisley Road Duo comprises Joanne Edwards (vocals and percussion) and Ian Bennett (guitar and percussion), with the trio seeing the addition of our highly experienced drummer, Keith Ashdown and now a full band with the addtion of a bass player
Our set lists cover many genres and concentrate mainly on well-known tunes from the 1950’s through to the 1980’s. Our duo arrangements provide easy listening and nostalgic music for audiences while our trio/band will get audiences up and dancing. Testimonials from audiences continually describe Paisley Road’s style and arrangements as insightful, classy and polished while creating a perfect ambiance for a memorable afternoon or evening out
Paisley Road’s members are all well regarded musicians. Joanne’s versatile vocals range from sultry jazz to contemporary and country ballads, to pop and rock. Ian’s award winning guitar style adds unique arrangements and incredible depth, while Keith’s 40+ years experience as a professional drummer in UK, Europe, NZ and Australia completes the unique sound that we like to define as “Paisley Road”
