|The Library Suits are a UK indie/rock group from Chelmsford, Essex. Formed in the summer of 2008, the band consists of Jon Ruskin on lead vocals and guitar, Matt Langley on bass guitar and backing vocals, Richard Olding on lead guitar and backing vocals and Paul Davidson on Drums and percussion.
Originally an acoustic project, bassist Matt and singer Jon soon decided it was time to take the next step and drafted in drummer Paul and guitarist Rich. After several successful practice sessions fueled by smooth funk/rock jams and tea, enough songs had been formed from the acoustic demo’s to take to the stage. Three months of gigging and songwriting then followed, creating the drive and ambition needed to record the first collection of songs.
Recording under the guidance of producer and long time friend Neak, The Library Suits first release was then crafted, the culmination of a week-long band trip to Wales which strengthened the group even further.
In November 2008 The Library Suits returned to Wales to record their Christmas song "Christmas Retreat" as well as a live version of "28 Minutes". |
