Atack – Electronic Press Kit
Atack’s founder member and lead guitarist is Keith Atack, one of the UK’s most in-demand session and touring guitar players. With a long pedigree in the rock music scene, his career began aged 16 performing at London’s renowned Marquee club before going on to become the tour guitarist of choice for acts such as Bonnie Tyler, Rick Astley, Jocelyn Browne and many others. His style is inspired by an early love for the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page and Ritchie Blackmore, mixed with the broad influences of funk, blues and jazz that international session work requires.
He is joined by four band members that also have strong roots in the rock scene. Drummer Bob Richards has played on video with AC/DC and toured with members of Iron Maiden, Survivor and Asia. Bassist Chris Childs has been a member of UK arena band Thunder since 1996 and has worked with Lonerider, Tyketto and many others. Vocalist Lee Small has recorded with SHY, Lionheart and is an active member of the legendary Sweet. Completing the quintet on Hammond organ is Nick Foley, an acclaimed session player and educator. The Hammond, together with the style and experience of these players, give “Nine Lives” the feel of Deep Purple and Rainbow with a true classic British rock sound.
