The Band

Amber: Lead & Backing Vocals

Amber is our newest recruit – she joined in June 2018! Amber comes from a classical music background, and is looking forward to delving into classic rock. In her spare time, in case you cant find her, she will usually be with her horses.

Craig Butler: Vocals & Drums


Originally from Blackpool,  Craig has been playing drums for a while but much prefers singing. Trouble is we like him too much as a drummer!!! It does confuse people though when we start up and the vocals suddenly appear.  However, Craig’s drumming skills have been noticed as he won the Salisbury Music Award’s Best Drummer Aware in 2015 and came third in 2017. Note: Craig quite likes Status Quo although he keeps this a secret.

Rich Watts: Bass Guitar

Please welcome Rich Watts who joined us on bass duties late in 2018.  Rich hails from the shadow of “the Stones” which explains a lot!  Rich also goes by the nickname “Mr 80’s” as he becomes all misty eyed whenever he spies a mullet or hears a good ‘ol tune from way back when!  Rich has played in many bands over the years, and has changed his gear more times than the cast of a Broadway musical in the search for that elusive bass “sound”. He cites his influences as greats such as John Entwhistle, Bernard Edwards, Billy Sheehan, Sting & John Taylor to name but a few. At the moment, Rich is playing the following gear: Yamaha Attitude II Bass,  Marbass Amp, Bergantino & Barefaced Bass Cabinets.

Terry Taylor: Lead & Rhythm Guitar


Terry started playing the guitar at early teenage years. He picked up songs predominantly by ear rather than looking at music. His playing really hit a resurgence though when he signed up to play in the musical “Return to the Forbidden Planet”. Off the back of an amazing week in Cambridge, he looked high and low for a local band and found Craig. Terry can be found at many local Blues jams outside the band as he loves playing improvised stuff. Terry puts recordings he’s done on Soundcloud here -> https://soundcloud.com/terryt063

Simon Dickenson: Lead & Rhythm Guitar


Ex-Statues guitarist Simon gave it all up for a while to travel. Having failed to find anywhere as nice as Salisbury and with a new family he returned after only a short time away and with a new found love of music. Where once he listened only to Rock now he listens to all sorts of music. (Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Punk Rock, everything.) Simon joined Break Cover in 2012 and was nominated at the Salisbury Music Awards in 2016 and 2017 as Salisbury’s Best Guitarist. Simon’s YouTube channel can be at:   https://www.youtube.com/user/salisburysimon

Ken Jones: Sound Engineer & Chief Roadie


Ken has been with Break Cover since the beginning and has been a great support to all. Ken took over Sound Engineer duties in 2014 and has thoroughly enjoyed getting to grips with Break Cover’s sound. Plus his skills as a Roadie are of the highest calibre and we would recommend him to anyone except that we never want to let him go. So if you ask, we’ll tell you he is rubbish.
