The Band

Jem: Lead & Backing Vocals

Jem joined the band at The New Inn Music Fest in August 2017. We are currently working on songs with her and we look forward to playing as a full band again.

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.

Lea Truckle: Bass Guitar

Lea is a Salisbury born and based multi instrumentalist. A prolific guitarist; Lea won the 2015 best guitarist award at the Salisbury Music Awards. It was quite a shock to us here at Break Cover when Lea applied for the bassist position as he had previously depped with guitar while Terry was away.  Lea joined us in May of 2017 and was rewarded when he won Best Bassist at the Salisbury Music Awards in October of the same year!

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 ->

Simon Dickenson: Lead & Rhythm Guitar

Ex-Statues guitarist Simon gave it all up for a while to travel round looking to find somewhere that was like Salisbury but cheaper. Having failed to find anywhere as nice and with a new family he returned to Salisbury 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.) After briefly reuniting for a few gigs with Statues in 2009 & 2010 to fund a headstone for Dave Marsh, Simon joined Break Cover in 2012. Simon plays UK made Victory Amps and has a thing for weird and unusual guitars. Simon’s YouTube channel can be found here:

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.

 Neil: Interim Lead & Rhythm Guitar

Neil supports us when Terry is away with work.  Neil has been playing guitar since he had hair and original comes from Dorest. He has been spotted playing for bands in the Wiltshire area. Neil is with us up to May in 2016 and then again later in the year.
