A rocking treat for the ears and the eyes
4th Labyrinth started life as a group of musicians who became friends, long before the name appeared. They create an energy that is hard to find in this world of manufactured bands and artificial stardom. You‘ll find their music somewhere between Queen, ELO, The Beatles,Radiohead and The Foo Fighters.
A sound that goes back to basics, a bit like it used to be-but then again-not really...
Things don‘t always have to be reinvented. If you hear a familiar sound, it‘s not because somebody said it sells, but because it sounds good. The band believes, selling records should be a result of but never the reason for making music.
A melody, a message and sweet harmonies is all it takes. It‘s right when it‘s beautiful, and beautiful it has to be!
| Marcel Kunkel (vox/keys) started playing the piano at the age of six and began singing in his early teens. Marcel has vast experience in almost anything that involves creating a record. He has worked for many years as a professional live sound engineer working in almost every genre. Now he takes the stage himself to see it all from the other side.
John Harper (guitar/vox) has seen and experienced things that other guys in their mid-twenties only dream of. That‘s what you hear when he plays the guitar. Mixing his influence into the sound of the band is what makes 4th Labyrinth rock or weep but, more importantly, it always makes it true.
|Claudia McKenzie (bass/vox) is one of the most sought after bassists in the Cambridge area. Her energetic and mesmerising stage presence never overshadows her amazing skills on the bass guitar. Claudia has also played on a number of records for others in all kinds of musical projects.
Tom Winch (drums) is a well established musician on the Cambridge music scene. Originally
starting with piano from a young age he discovered the drums later in life. With the distinct advantage of being able to read score and already speaking the language of music, he
soon mastered the new instrument to the point of teaching others. Together with Claudia he provides the solid rhythmic backbone of 4th Labyrinth.

Nick Corney and The Buzz Rats
Four piece Folk Rock band from Peterborough
'Utterly ace' - Sue Dougan - BBC Radio Cambs
Some ten years ago, Nick Corney walked into a music shop on a whim, and bought an acoustic guitar. He has scarcely put it down since, turning out songs that span the emotional spectrum, and producing a five track EP - Signs Of Life. Nick's voice effortlessly evokes the claustrophobia of small-town living on Sweet Mary, and the bittersweet memories of a lost friend on Smoky Joe.
2015 saw Nick return to the studio to record another four-track EP, this time joined by Christopher R. Moore on lead guitar and harmonica, Ben Knight on keys and Keith Doe on drums. The Buzz Rats, as they are collectively known, have expanded Nick's sound beyond the realm of the acoustic singer-songwriter. Ben's delicate piano lines can be heard on fan favourite and title track 'The Perfect Landing', transforming a sparse acoustic song into an mournful sonic lullaby. Christopher's blues roots are clearly on display in A Thousand Lives - his slide-guitar lines adding a haunting atmosphere to the gritty folk-inspired number.
The Buzz Rats have become regular featured artists at respected local music venues who are keen to promote the best of local original music. Following on from Nick's solo appearance on BBC Radio Cambs with Sue Dougan, tracks from the new EP have been played by Jeremy Sallis on the afternoon show, Mark Forrest on The Evening Show and by Tom Simkins on BBC Introducing.
