Herefordshire and West Sussex-based PHC vocalist and guitar player Simon Tittley met keyboard player, backing vocalist and flautist Susie Wellings on his first ever internet date !
The couple met early in 2011 through the Guardian Soulmates dating website and soon realised they shared a deep love and passion for music.
Simon originally started the band in Brighton in 2015 and after several personnel changes persuaded Susie to dig out her flute from a dusty loft and to buy a new Roland keyboard !
Since that time the duo have played venues and festivals in UK, France & Spain drawing inspiration from The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album, psychedelic bands such as Cream, the blues of Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters and Willie Dixon, early Soul and R&B hits and the reggae of Bob Marley & the Wailers.
Simon started playing guitar at the age of eleven and began playing in bands from the age of twelve. After attending drama school in the early seventies he began working as an actor and guitar player.
In the eighties he worked as a songwriter and producer for WEA International in Bangkok, Thailand.
He was signed to an indie label in the USA during the early nineties and played all over the East Coast of the USA. Since then he has worked as a producer developing new artists and as a musician in theatre.
Susie studied piano and flute as a child. Her father, producer and entrepreneur Bill Wellings, founded the 60’s Hot Hits label.
Susie remembers attending sessions with her dad where top UK session musicians Big Jim Sullivan, Jimmy Page and Elton John played on cover versions of top international hits.
After a long and varied career Susie has returned to music making.
