Mike and The Mechanics have sold over 10 million records worldwide. Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford (guitar) returns with the same new generation Mike and The Mechanics.
The line-up includes one of the UK’s most prolific R&B singers, Andrew Roachford (lead and backing vocals), whose previous hits include 'Cuddly Toy' and 'Family Man'. and Canadian-born singer Tim Howar (lead and backing vocals), who toured with his band Vantramp, with Rod Stewart and Paulo Nutini. Tim shares vocal duties with Roachford and they both add a new soulful dimension to the band’s already established sound.
