Graeme Taylor

Tom Leary

Dave Lambert

Jon Davie

Zeus is a new band featuring Graeme Taylor, Tom Leary, Dave Lambert and Jon Davie.

In 1994 Graeme and Tom first toured Europe with the late John B Spencer and Tom & Jon toured in Canada the year before with The Albion Morris. A few years down the line, this new project was started with the addition of Dave Lambert (Strawbs).

Tom is also a member of the celebrated Feast of Fiddles with Ian Cutler (who of course plays as a duo with Dave Cousins and in Dave's Blue Angel Orchestra).

Zeus will be playing a mix of acoustic songs and instrumentals, both original and traditional with influences ranging from the British Isles to the Far East. According to a recent interview with DL, this should be a bit "different", as they are intending to use traditional folky instruments but want to achieve something different from a traditional folky sound.

Readers of these pages might already be somewhat familiar with Dave Lambert {grin}, who'll be on guitar and vocals with Zeus, but here's some info about the other members of the band:

  • Graeme Taylor: guitar, vocals (Gryphon, The Albion Band, John Tams Band, The Home Service, John Kirkpatrick Band & The Rolf Harris Band)
  • Tom Leary: fiddle, mandolin etc (Feast of Fiddles, Tanna, Little Johnny England, Kevin Dempsey, Phil Bates Trio (ELO), Albion Morris)
  • Jon Davie: bass (Gryphon, The Home Service, John Williams, Albion Morris etc)
  • Zeus made their live debut at the spectacular 40th Anniversary Strawbs weekend in September 2009, to considerable acclaim. Astudio album is nearly finished and expected some time in 2010.
