Tinyfish is a four piece band based in South London with a deep and abiding interest in all forms of progressive music.
The group formed in 2005 as part of an informal collective of musicians who enjoyed playing the acoustic open mic spots of London (UK).
Although profoundly influenced by the UK progressive scene, the band were keen to break from as many of the traditional prog clichés as possible. ‘I would die of boredom if I thought we were just recycling the songs and sound of the 70’s’ said lead singer and songwriter Simon Godfrey. To that end, Tinyfish chose to write and perform without the aid of a keyboard player, using guitar synths, electronic percussion and a myriad of special effects to obtain their distinctively melodic sound. ‘It forces us to think differently and keep away from musical comfort zones’ adds lyricist Robert Ramsay.
Upon releasing their eponymous debut album in 2007, Tinyfish undertook their first UK tour to promote the release. Both the tour and the album were hailed as a great success with Classic Rock naming it as one of the top 15 albums of the year.
2008 has seen the band sign to respected progressive label F2 Records worldwide and they have begin work upon on their follow up album "The Big Red Spark". 2009 has been even busier with an EP of rare material, a live DVD filmed in Poland, and even more live gigs!
Guitarist Jim Sanders sums up Tinyfish so far:
“We’ve come a long way from four guys jamming in a loftspace for fun. We’re very pleased by how much success the group has encountered in such a short period of time but the only important goal for Tinyfish is whatever comes next.”
