After years of relentless struggle for fame and fortune lead guitarist and singer Fionn Craven realised he needed a little help from his friends. At the same time Harry 'Dubstepper' Hughes was finding his way through the open mic scene boxing beats like it was going out of fashion. Their eyes meet across a crowded room and they began to make sweet music together but knew something was missing and that gap was filled by master bass player Michael Donovan and local key caresser Mike Boxall. With this The East Collective was formed with their contempary sound including funky bass, jazzy keys, gritty beatboxing and soulful vocals that gets the crowd up and dancing where ever they go.
