RAI KAH MERCURY + PRIMAL + DANTES ESCAPE
Rai Kah Mercury is built around the multi-talented singer, guitarist, songwriter Tomas Crean, superbly complemented by Reece Schaefer on bass and Josh Lowe on drums. Rai Kah Mercury’s music is subtle, intense, soulful, bluesy and downright heavy at times.
Their 2018 single Terror Incognita has featured on Spotify curated playlists such as Discover Weekly, and Release Radar, and has been featured by BBC Music Introducing WM, and Switch Radio.
Down The Front Media said of Terror Incognita “It’s one of those tracks that feels like it’s lulling you into a chaotic trance of euphoria, and at times the culmination of all the instruments seem to override the senses causing your mind to swirl with the rhythm, the heavy feel that it exudes and the intoxicating rhythm feel like a drug that you just can’t seem to get enough of.”
Rai Kah Mercury has new music recorded and scheduled for release late 2018.

Dantès Escape formed in September 2018 when Solo Artist and former Rubio front-man Kyle Parsons decided to begin work on his Solo EP. He called in the help of former Bigger than Seattle band-mates Paul Smith and Pete Wainwright and the group got to work enhancing the sonic quality and dynamics of Kyle’s compositions.
Their first performance on 11th October at Birmingham’s Asylum venue promises an exciting future for this 3-piece band who will go on to showcase their talents at BMA’s Music Network Monthly on 21st November and then onto Katie Fitzgerald’s Christmas Eve Party on December 24th.
The band are poised to release their first recordings in 2019
