EPK (Electronic Press Kit) – Hybrid Spirits
Hybrid Spirits are an unsigned British band based in Birmingham and Pontefract UK. Our music is a fantastic example of what can happen when different people with different interests, ideas, tastes, experiences, backgrounds and influences work together. Our “style” of music can’t be pigeon-holed, hence the very apt name ‘Hybrid Spirits’. Our individual and eclectic music tastes mean that you (or we!) never know what we’ll create next, and there is something for (almost!) everybody. To date, our music releases range from Ambient to Alternative, from Electronic to Rock, from Light to Dark.
As we are spread across the UK, and Voodoo Jade is in a wheelchair, we don’t meet up often or play gigs. Band photos are a rare occurrence, However, we have band meetings on Skype and send music files to each other electronically so we can work on songs individually!
Hybrid Spirits are :
Nigel Rooke – Vocals, lyrics, keyboards and drum programming.
Paul Kirk – Vocals, lyrics, keyboards, guitars and drum programming.
Voodoo Jade – Vocals and lyrics
