Producing a high-quality full band experience, the band performs originals and covers using state of the art performance technology which is rarely seen on today’s live circuit.
'I first became aware of The Speak when my friend, colleague, songwriter and fellow music producer, David Courtney (Leo Sayer, Roger Daltrey, et al), introduced me to them. David's not a man who is impressed by bands easily, so I knew they'd have to be something special when he insisted I go to see them perform.
They seemed to effortlessly mix a blend of bygone classic rock styles, yet make it sound totally fresh and very twenty-first century. Performed expertly with real impact and a dynamic professionalism most new bands lack, these guys simply sound superb, with great songs to boot. If there's any justice, they should do great things!'
