Lead vocals: Tom Chaplin
Keane are one of my biggest influences so it makes sense to have Tom as lead singer. He has such as incredible voice and an amazing range.
Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals: Jeff Buckley
Growing up, he was always being played at home so he's been a big inspiration. He was such a great talent and was also a multi-instrumentalist so he could help out with other additions such as the mandolin or the harmonica to add some colour to the overall sound.
Rhythm Guitar & Backing Vocals: KT Tunstall
She's great at using a loop pedal, which creates an amazing wall of sound. It would be interesting to hear her weave some intricate harmonies with the other vocalists.
Drums: Omar Hakim
Omar has drummed for loads of incredible artists in the past including Madonna, Sting and more recently on Daft Punk's “Get Lucky”. He features on the drums on some tracks on my new album so it would be great to see him in this band!
Birdy's album 'Fire Within' is out now through 14 Floor/Atlantic.
